  • Place eggs into a metal mixing bowl; add sugar and lemon juice. Place the bowl over the saucepan with simmering water and whisk continuously until mixture foams and becomes thick, hot, and smooth, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Remove from heat; whisk in lemon zest and unsalted butter. Continue whisking until butter melts and incorporates into lemon curd.

  • Press plastic wrap onto the curd's surface to prevent skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled and set, about 1 hour. Stir before serving.
