Lemon Sunshine Curd

Start by taking out 2 packages of cream cheese to bring to room temperature.
Next lets make the Lemon Curd, it will need to cool a little.
Melt 1 stick of butter on medium heat when butter is melted turn the heat on low,
 whisk in  6 tblsp Sweet Blend( or 6 tblsp swerve or Pyure)
whisk in  6 egg yolks
 and 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice  and
2 drops lemon essential oil (optional) and
1/4 cup lemon zest (optional)
Stir until well blended and continue stirring until it thickens 2- 3 minutes . let cool in fridge while making cheesecake

  1. I am assuming this gets baked? And do you prebake the crust, then add the cheesecake mixture? Can you give baking temo and time? Thanks - this sounds wonderful! Pam

  2. Mouth watering already. I'll go and prepare my simple pastry and make my first PUMPKIN PIE in ages ! Hubby cannot tolerate dairy. :-( I use coconut cream in my p pie.
    Btw, your cheesecake looks scrumptious. Congratulations ! How do you make that lovely pattern on the top ?

    1. I drop by spoonful and go around the pie clockwise starting in the center an working my way out staggering where I add the lemon curd.Then run a butter knife through the curd an make a swirl pattern.Hope that helps
