This is a super-easy curd recipe that doesn't require straining, thermometers, boiling water, or anything else difficult. The food processor step and the low microwave settings do this for you! I use this as a filling in coconut-lime cupcakes with coconut-cream cheese frosting. Also fabulous by itself!
