Lime curd with chocolate cookie crumbs
Two powerful flavors—lime and chocolate—come together to make one rich, satisfying treat. The homemade lime curd is rich, smooth, and wonderfully tart. Lime and lemon curds are traditionally served as a spread for scones and biscuits, a topping for pancakes or yogurt, or used as a filling for cakes, but you can just eat it with a spoon too, as we have here, with the addition of crumbled chocolate wafers for flavor and texture. You can crumble the cookies by hand, or for finer crumbs, place the cookies in a zip-toc plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. You can of course substitute lemons, if you like.
2 large egg(s), thoroughly beaten
Fresh lime juice
1 tsp, finely minced

- Preheat oven to 325ºF.
- In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, combine eggs, lime juice, lime zest, and powdered sugar; blend completely. Spoon about 2 tablespoons lime curd into each of 8 small ramekins. Bake until curd is set, about 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool before crumbling a cookie over each one. Yields 1 ramekin per serving.
