Ingredients

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    cup fresh lemon or lime juice

  • 4

    eggs plus 4 yolks beaten

  • 3

    tbsp. finely grated lemon or lime zest (3 fruits)

  • 1 1/2

    sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces

  • 1

    box mini phyllo shells

  • Whipped cream - for serving

Directions

Set a fine mesh strainer over a heatproof, medium bowl. In a heavy, medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, citrus juice, eggs, egg yolks and 2 tbsp. zest. Add the butter and cook over medium heat, stirring until completely melted. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring continually until the mixture thickens, 6-8 minutes (do not let boil). Strain, discarding the solids. Stir in the remaining 1 tbsp. zest. Press a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the surface. Let cool to room temperature then cool for at least 4 hours. Bake the phyllo cups according to package directions. Let cool. Fill them with the curd and dollop each with whipped cream. Top with more zest, if desired.
