Hurry……and go get some cherries
this cherry lime curd is AMAZING!
It’s deliciously creamy and a little tangy but sweet all at the same time,
and you will want to eat it right off the spoon!
It’s perfect with scones and I’ll be sharing my new favorite scone with you very soon.
This cherry lime curd is great on ice cream if you can manage not to devour the whole jar before you have time to grab an ice cream scoop and dish!
It’s also wonderful on pancakes, waffles, muffins, and on plain yogurt.
Be sure to give these Cream Scones a try!
