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.


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
