This deliciously tart, thick cream is traditionally used as a spread for scones, but is just as tasty in a tart or topped with fresh berries.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons butter (cut into pieces)


  Whisk eggs, yolks, and sugar in a small saucepan until smooth. Add lemon juice, zest and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter melts, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, continue cooking and stirring until curd is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Curd should be thick. Pour through a strainer into a chilled bowl. Keeps up to a week in the refrigerator.


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
