Lemon Curd

So, what is lemon curd, and what do you do with it?

Lemon curd is essentially a preserve or condiment made with lemon juice, eggs, sugar and butter. The first three ingredients get blended and softly warmed so that the eggs thicken the mixture. Whisking in cold butter finishes it off and smoothes it out.

Big Butterscotchy Oatmeal Cookies

I haven’t been consistently happy with my oatmeal cookie recipe for a while. Sometimes they turn out perfectly ‚Äî fairly flat, chewy and moist in the middle, with crinkly, caramelized edges (not cakey or rounded) and a butterscotch-esque flavour. Other times, they don’t follow orders, staying too puffed, or becoming a little dry and less damply dense than I crave.
