Lemon Curd Cookie Filling
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
zest from 1 lemon
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 egg yolks
Fill a medium pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and create a double boiler by placing a large metal bowl over the pot.
Add all ingredients except egg yolks to the bowl. Stir to combine.
Add egg yolks while continuing to stir vigorously. Mixture is ready once it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Transfer curd to a glass food storage container. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
