This morning's job was to defrost the big freezer downstairs--a dreaded job but it is always so nice once it is done. While I was waiting for the ice to melt away, I made some lemon curd and cream scones for a treat with our tea.
1/2 c. sugar
5 T butter, cut up
2 large eggs beaten
1/4c. lemon juice
2 T grated lemon zest
Cook over simmering water for one hour. Stir occasionally. It will thicken as it sets. Transfer to bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Keeps about one week. *This is very tart, so for a sweeter version, increase the sugar.
I found the recipe for the cream scones over at Laine's Letters.
