  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar


  • 1/2 cup lemon curd
  • 1/2 cup berries (blueberries or raspberries)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line mini muffin tins with paper tins or spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Add the pecans, butter and sugar in a food processor. Mix until the mixture comes together to form a coarse paste.
