Delicious homemade lemon curd sandwiched between flaky pie crust. These lemon curd hand pies are the perfect combination of sweet and tangy!

One of my FAVORITE things to make with fresh lemons is lemon curd. It is one of those things that might seem like it would be complicated to make, but is actually extremely simple. I juiced all of the lemons and put the juice in quart sized mason jars in my refrigerator. Now I have it on hand and ready to go anytime I need it.
You can find my homemade lemon curd recipe here, but I’ll also go ahead and let you know that I never make a single batch. Always a double batch so that I can put it on everything and share with friends. Lemon curd makes a delicious filling for cakes and cupcakes, a topping on sugar cookies, and the center for hand pies!
