 Let’s face it… mornings are tough. Often times they can just go by in a blur or lunch boxes and briefcases and out the door, we go! And, because of this rush, rush we also tend to forget one of the most important parts of the morning; breakfast!

Thanks to Little Debbie®, they have you covered in the breakfast department. Little Debbie® Mini Muffins are a great option for grab and go in the morning!

My personal favorite flavor of mini muffins are the blueberry! I love them because I get to slather one of my favorite condiments on them, lemon curd.

Raspberry Lemonade Curd

Ingredients
  • ½ cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • ½ cup raspberry puree (4 ounces raspberries blended with 1 tablespoon water)
  • 1½ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 6 egg yolks, divided
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste, divided
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pot, add the lemon juice, ¾ cup of the sugar and 3 egg yolks. Whisk until smooth, place on medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 4 minutes. Take off the heat, add in 4 tablespoons of the butter, ¼ teaspoon of the vanilla and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine, let cool completely.
  2. Repeat the first step but in place of the lemon, use the raspberry puree and use the remaining ingredients as listed in the first step.
  3. Once the curds are cool, layer in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator, enjoy.
Notes
You, of course, do not need to do the layering effect as I have done in this post. If you wish to just mix the two together, place the lemon juice through eggs, whisk everything until combined and cook as listed in the first step. Add all the butter, vanilla and salt. Store the same way.
