Kowalski's Signature Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is a soft, smooth, intensely flavored spread made from cooked egg yolks, sugar and lemon juice. Butter is usually added at the end of cooking to add a silky texture, sheen and richness. This delicious, fruity concoction is a versatile performer in the kitchen, so you're going to want to familiarize yourself with the basics:

Is curd the same as custard?
Curds are typically smoother and creamier than pie fillings or custards and contain a higher proportion of juice and zest.

How is it used?
Lemon curd is a popular substitute for jam as a spread for bread, muffins, scones, toast, bagels, waffles and pancakes. It also makes a great filling or topping for cakes and cupcakes, especially white and yellow cake, angel food cake, pound cake, cake a yeast doughnuts, and cheesecake.

Lemon curd can be used in all manner of pie and tart shells, puff pastry and fillo shells as well as Pavlova-style meringue shells (such as Bistro Meringues Dessert Cups) with fresh berries or other fruit.

What else can I do with it?
It's also wonderful swirled into yogurt. try blending some with whipped cream for a fast and easy lemon mousse!

Kowalski's Signature Rolled Oat Cookies

An irresistible base recipe made with simple ingredients – flour, brown sugar, butter, oats, vanilla, salt and baking soda – is the secret to these lightly sweet treats. Crispy and delicate, they're still sturdy enough to stand up to a bit of a soft sweet or tangy cheese (we love them with mascarpone or a pungent, salty blue). They're also perfect on their own with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Find them in the Bakery Department.
