  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon plus 1 cup lemon juice
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker crust
  • Confectioners’ sugar


  1. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and eggs. Pour in the lemon juice and melted butter and stir to combine.
  2. Microwave, checking every minute and stirring with a spoon, until the lemon curd coats the back of the spoon, about 6 minutes. Pour into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Remove from the freezer and sprinkle with the lemon zest and as much confectioners’ sugar as you desire. Slice into squares and serve on a pretty platter.
