I used half of a 10.5 oz jar of lemon curd in a recipe and now I'm looking for a recipe to use the other half of the jar.

Lemon Curd Whip Fruit Dip, Pie Filling Or Lemon Cake Icing
In a medium bowl, combine Cool Whip and Lemon Curd. Chill and serve as a dip for pretzels, fruit, angel food or pound cake bites, graham cracker sticks, etc. Use also as a frosting for lemon cake, or as a pie filling.
My great aunt use to make a fantastic cake using Lemon Curd. She made a lemon layer cake and frosted the entire cake with the curd. I always looked forward to our family reunions, because she made sure that I got a piece of this cake. I have made it and my family loves it. My great aunt always made her own homemade lemon curd. I have her recipe and make it often. (10/01/2008)

My hubby loves it between two layers of homemade shortbread. You make the shortbread, put a nice thick layer in your baking tin, put another layer on top and bake in oven till done. (10/02/2008)
Lemon curd makes a great filling with whipped cream for sponge or Victoria sandwich cakes.

I found this recipe in a Pillsbury recipe booklet. You could likely use your own sugar cookie dough, omit coconut, etc., to suit your tastes.
Makes: 3 dozen cookies
Take a good slice of French or Italian bread. Toast and butter it. Spread with lemon curd and then seedless raspberry jam. This is delicious. If you have any double sided heating appliance (Foreman Grill, waffle iron, panini maker, etc.) you can make a grilled dessert.
Butter the outsides of the bread. Spread one slice on the inside with lemon curd and raspberry jam. Place miniature marshmallows on the top of the jam. Put the other slice of bread on the top, butter side out (like a grilled cheese sandwich).
Heat until the marshmallows have melted. Be careful its hot. Enjoy. I do a lot of camping and you can make these in a pie iron. (10/02/2008)
