These zesty Thermomix lemon bars are hard to resist. The homemade lemon curd is super easy to make in the Thermo, very much a set-it-and-forget-it lemon curd recipe that fills your kitchen with tantalizing smells. Be sure to leave the measuring cup lid OFF for the majority of the time that the lemon curd is cooking. The curd needs time to set overnight, and you'll be rewarded with bite-sized treats of tangy lemon curd, on a buttery, biscuity base.
