3 tablespoons purchased lemon curd

Notes

Tip 1:  The crust is partially baked before adding filling and baked again.  Pre baking the                   crust will seal the base for filling preventing a soggy crust.

Tip 2:   Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving for perfect slices.  Refrigerate any                          leftovers.
