Recipe

Yield: 2 cups, enough to fill 24 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Grated zest of 3 limes
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch pieces

Directions

In the top of a double boiler, whisk together the lime juice and cornstarch. Add the sugar, zest, and egg yolks; whisk to combine. Bring the bottom of the double boiler to a simmer. Using a whisk, stir the mixture until it’s thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 20 minutes.

Whisk in the butter, one or two pieces at a time. When all the butter is combined, transfer the curd to a clean bowl. Cover the surface of the curd with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to cool.
