    I am looking forward to that lemon meringue pie recipe. It is my favorite dessert ever. It reminds me of yellow, sunshine summer and my birthday.
    A matter of fact instead of birthday cake last June, that is what i asked for.
    You know I am going to try the curd! we just need to eat some of those yummy bars first.
    Thanks Amy!

    Hi Great recipe – I too cannot wait for the lemon meringue pie recipe. That was always my desert of choice before becoming coeliac.
    Thankyou x

    It’s funny you’ve been on a lemon kick, I think it subconsciously inspired me too! I made gf/sf lemon bars today. They’re cooling now, and I cannot wait to try it. The zest was enough to make me grin when I was mixing them. I will definitely be trying your lemon curd recipe. =D

    I love lemon curd and just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I’ve got several organic lemons sitting in my fridge and I bought agave nectar the other day. I think it is a good afternoon to make this mouth watering recipe.

    Oh, Amy, this starts that lemony craze from deep within for me! I love lemon curd. Haven’t made it since going dairy-free. I wonder if I’d prefer ghee, or Earth Balance, in the recipe? Ghee is harder, and more strongly flavored, but it’s also not processed. Hmm. Do you have suggestions?

    Amy Reply:

    @Alta, I was thinking about trying coconut oil…I don’t think ghee would be the best choice. I could be wrong, though.

    @Amy, You may be right. Definitely need to make some for myself though!

    @Amy, Would coconut creme (milk) be a good dairy replacement?

    Amy Reply:

    @Carol, You’d have to give it a try and see how it works. I would opt for coconut oil instead of coconut creme.

    I just made lemon filling (with cornstarch, since this very pregnant belly can’t stand up near the stove for a long time) the other day to satisfy this pregnancy craving thing! And I graciously saved a few teaspoons full for my husband (who said I needed to make it more often.) It does have a bunch of sugar in it, so I am going to have to try your version. It looks so rich and creamy. Do you recall how long your active prep time was?

    thanks for this version! YUMMMY!

    @abbie, It took me longer than it should have because I didn’t have the heat high enough and I decided to switch to a bowl that fit more ‘snugly’ into the pot I was using as the bottom of my double boiler. It shouldn’t take more than 15 – 20 minutes, though.

    Oh that looks lovely! I LOVE lemon curd but I don’t like the sugar slaughterfest. I’m in London so I’ve been pining for all of those lemony things.

    Amazingly simple as always, Amy! I’m jumping on Joe’s bandwagon. Lemon meringue pie reminds me of one of my grandfather’s who always made it. I do have his recipe, but haven’t attempted to make it gf and refined sugar-free. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    The cool, wet weather in California has everybody’s lemons ready to pick at the same time. My neighbor’s have been piling them on us. I can’t wait to put some to use in this recipe.

    what I love, LOVE, about your blog is how you take food I miss now I’m GF/SF and make it so I can eat it! I’d never have thought of using agave in this. Thanks heaps Amy, can’t wait to try. Lemon session is just around the corner over here in New Zealand. Wonderful.

    @Elissa, That’s where much of my inspiration comes from – making food I can’t eat but want to. So I figure it out myself. :)

    Hi Amy,
    what can agave nectar be replaced with? I’m intolerant to fructose and I need an alternative (can’t be honey – same reason). Thanks

    Lemon is probably my favorite flavor, tied with chocolate. I can’t wait to make this!

    @coleen, If you’re making it in a crust, you might want to add another egg yolk to thicken it up a little bit. As it sits at room temp it gets thinner because of the agave. :)

    Happy birthday to your daughter! And wow to you for cooking for her. No one has ever made me a birthday cake. You get the mom of the year award!
    Hugs,
    Amy

    @Amy, thanks, amy, for that little piece of wisdom! oh, i don’t need the mom of the year award…kassia, my daughter, inspires me so much in her endeavors to provide for her family with her baking and cooking—she is amazing! so, it is my joy to give back just a little bit by baking a special thing just for her! y’know?
    blessings to you today!

    can i just point out that agave nectar, while sounding like a great idea, is actually pure fructose.
