In a small saucepan, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar until smooth. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook, whisking continuously, until the mixture thickens to cover the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
Remove bowl from heat and add Country Crock® Plant Butter, whisking until completely melted.
Strain curd through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap so that it touches the top of the curd to keep it from developing a skin. Chill at least an hour.
