Favorite use for lemon curd?

I have a pint of lemon curd, and am looking for something fun to do with it besides just eating it with toast. Any great ideas?

Thanks.

  1. I make a strawberry shortcake with macerated strawberries on homemade biscuits topped with whipped cream into which I've stirred an equal amount of lemon curd. Heavenly.

      I've done the same but stirred in the lemon curd with the macerated strawberries... I think your version is much more elegant...

      Since you already have the lemon curd, it will save you a step. But oh boy these are yum:

      1. Blueberries and lemon curd go great together, so if you can still find blueberries, make a parfait.

        Made a plain jelly roll filled with lemon curd, sprinkled withconfectioner's sugar, served with a blueberry sauce. It was February, so we used frozen berries cooked with a little sugar, then cooled. It was a perfect match.

        1. Lemon Curd tart? great filling for crepes; best maybe just eaten with a spoon!
