Given my son's ongoing interest in all the colors of the rainbow, I decided to incorporate the rainbow into our dessert. A thin, chewy sugar cookie topped with refreshing lemon curd makes the sun and an array of summer's fruits makes the rainbow.
I have always loved lemon curd for the intense sunburst hit of citrus that it brings to the table. I like this Cooking Light recipe because it calls for very little butter compared to other recipes so it is still light and refreshing while maintaining a spreadable consistency...all in all, the perfect balance between lemon curd and lemon filling.
I have been making these for a long time and they have never let me down. They are bite-sized, refreshing and the perfect combination of sweet, creamy and tart.
