Hey! We’re back after the Christmas holidays, with lots of lime curd, lemon curd and macarons.
Just before Christmas I received an unspeakable desire for macarons. As you know, I have a sweet tooth and many favorite flavors, and this time I felt like having a lot of delicious options. I started with wishing 17 flavors, but Katrine limited me to choose 6 flavors. So I did! I decided snickers macarons, raspberry macarons, lemon macarons, licorice macarons, pistachio macarons and mojito macarons. As you might have guessed this hunger resulted in Katrine spending most of the 22.dec in the kitchen. Of course I do not feel the least bit bad about this, because it ment that i could have a macaron feast the whole Christmas.

Katrine has promised me, that all the recipes will be posted in January. Today she will post a recipe on lime curd. She has just made the recipe, and it is already one of her personal favorites. Todays lime curd recipe gives a sour, sharp, creamy, sweet and utterly delicious lime curd. It can be used for icings, as a filling in layer cake, topping on cheesecakes, trifle, cupcakes and macarons.
