Mouth-puckering lime curd is deliciously balanced with butter cookies and cream. Swap lemons for the limes. Or try bitter oranges such as Seville or Bergamot.

Ingredients

Regular butter

1 tbsp(s), softened

Powdered sugar (icing sugar)

¾ cup(s)

Lime zest

1½ tsp(s), finely minced

Raw egg(s)

2 large

Fresh lime juice

tbsp(s)

Shortbread cookie(s) 5/8 in. square

36 item(s), commercially prepared (about 10 oz total)

Lite whipped topping

¾ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light; add zest. Next, add one egg at a time, beating after each addition; add lime juice (mixture will be lumpy).
  2. Pour mixture into a medium saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until lime mixture thickens like a pudding, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Spread a heaping teaspoon of lime curd onto each cookie. Before serving, top each with a teaspoon of whipped topping. Yields 1 cookie per serving.
