Lime Curd Dessert With Special Crumble

This is unusual and refreshing after an evening meal. When served with guests at the table, they will be so happy they came for dinner. Your family? They will think someone took their Mom and replaced her. Who Knew?

The unusual part of this dessert is that is not made with lemon.


  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 limes, finely zested
  • 1 cup sugar*
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup, room temperature butter, cut in cubes
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups of a plain, Greek yogurt
  • Honey to drizzle
  • Your own special homemade crumble

* taste it in case you require a bit more sugar. Should be tart, not sour.

In a medium saucepan, bring the lime juice, all the zest and 1/2 cup sugar to the boil. Lower the temperature when it starts the full boil.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs and remaining sugar until smooth and creamy.

With the mixer still beating, gradually add the lime mixture without stopping. If you stop, it will curdle.

Return to the saucepan and whisk continuously. When the mixture starts to  boil, remove from the heat. Mix in the butter, whisking until smooth and blended. Cover with plastic wrap, making sure it touches the surface of the curd and cool before refrigeration.

Place 3-4 large spoonfuls of the lime curd into stemless wine glasses (or your prettiest glasses) and top with a large dollop of yogurt. Drizzle with honey and a sprinkle of your own homemade crumble.

Woo Hoo! You will love it. Serve with a couple of your homemade oatmeal or shortbread cookies.
