Yolks Only Lemon Curd Recipe?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello, I was wondering does anyone have a yolks only lemon curd recipe that they would be willing to share with me? I am looking to use up some excess egg yolks, and am looking for a curd that is slightly thicker.

 

I did a search and was having difficulty in finding an yolks only recipe...

 

Thanks in advance,

R.

we make this recipe all the time . i like to actually wisk it vigorously while it comes to a low boil (after the egg yolks have been added) then it comes out nice and thick after straining.
