It is so great when you find recipes that seem fancy and complex. But really, they are super simple and not fussy at all. This Apple Curd Recipe is just that.

This is an easy dessert recipe that involves mixing a few ingredients and cooking on the stove top.

Then you can happily announce that you made your own Spiced Apple Curd. And you absolutely do not need to tell anybody how simple it really is.

Musselman’s Apple Butter is the star of this recipe. It creates a luscious flavor that will upgrade even the simplest of desserts. I absolutely love using Musselman’s Apple Butter as a secret ingredient in my recipes!

I filled puff pastry cups with this apple curd then dusted with powdered sugar.

But this curd would also be great in tarts, mini hand pies, thumbprint cookies, filled donuts and on toast or scones.

Or since there are leftover egg whites you could make curd filled macarons, mini pavlovas or light and fluffy pancakes topped with apple curd and powdered sugar.

You may just find yourself eating this curd straight out of the bowl. I’m not going to admit how I know this.

The most ‘difficult’ part of this recipe is separating the eggs. Or maybe that is just hard for me. I do not have a gentle touch.

Mix. Mix. Mix.

Then all you need to do is whisk and cook. Don’t walk away. Just don’t. Trust me.

Be aware that the curd will continue to thicken as it cools. So you will want to stop cooking it before it reaches that thick consistency. You want it to be drizzly but not liquidy.

This curd freezes well. So if you don’t use it all go ahead and pop it in the freezer for a rainy day.

  8. Linda Soulia-Smith says:

    This might be a crazy question, However, can curd be canned?? I send goodies to my children in the mid-west. If so, do you know how long it would need to be processes?
    Thank you!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Not a crazy question. But, I don’t can so I definitely can’t say for sure if this would work. Sorry I’m not more help when it comes to canning. But how nice to send goodie packages, I’m sure they love it!
