Yield:
6 to 8 servings

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 prepared 8-inch tart shell, blind-baked
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, rinsed and stems removed
  • 1 cup sweetened whipped cream, optional accompaniment
Directions

In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, cook the sugar, lemon juice, butter, zest, and eggs, whisking frequently, until a custard forms and bubbles appear on surface, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl.

Spoon the lemon curd into the prepared tart shell, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or rubber spatula. Arrange the berries in a decorative pattern over the top, and serve with whipped cream on the side, if desired.
