Filling/cream for premade sweet pastry cases

Does anyone have an easy Peary recipe for a sweet cream/filling please?

The easiest I know is to fold lemon curd (I use homemade) through whipped cream, or beat into cream cheese.

That sounds yummy. Do u have an easy lemon curd recipe Maddie will please?

What are you filling? There are several different pastry creams, each of which has a slightly different flavour and texture from the others and a different purpose. Some are used as is, some are mixed with whipped cream or meringue to lighten them, and some support fruit additions.

I love the lemon curd mixed into cream filling. Be very heavy handed with the lemon curd so you get a really lemony flavour. If you do not want to make your own then use Barkers Lemon Curd. It really is fantastic.

I am filling premade sweet pastry cases.
Thanks lynja I will look out for that lemon curd in the supermarket. Should really make my own .

Microwave lemon curd (small amount)

2 eggs + 1 yolk, juice and zest of a lemon (I always add more), half cup sugar. Whisk together, microwave on High in 30 second bursts for 2-3 mins, whisking in between, until thickens. Store in fridge for a couple of weeks, or freeze and scoop straight from freezer.

And as linja said, be heavy handed with the lemon curd when combining with cream etc.

Neenish tarts are tasty.

Kaddiew that's my kind of recipe - thank you!

OOPS sorry make that the juice & zest of 2 lemons, not one! I always add far more anyway, so you could do it to taste. ; )

And it is an excellent recipe, this is the only one I will make. It freezes well and you can still scoop it out easily from frozen. It is wonderful in ice-cream and mixed in softly whipped cream, as another poster mentioned, for a filling.

I've been using the recipe for more than 20 years, and i would never again be faffed standing over a double boiler or using a recipe with butter. So simple, and I always have a small pottle in the freezer.

quick and easy passionfruit curd or lemon curd (as suggested above). They can be mixed together or used separately with thick whipped fresh cream or mock cream. Or a nice thick rich custard mixed with the curd or cream.

OMG I can't wait to try both the lemon and passion fruit curds. Putting custard with the curd - again so simple. Thanks everyone.

Chocolate mousse, thick custard or custard & whipped cream mix. Make a chocolate ganache, or even marshmallow.
