  • 3 Tbsp raisins or crushed pecans


  • We used aluminum mini tin liners to create the tarts.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Place all of the dough ingredients into a blender and process until date is combined and you can roll into a ball. The dough shouldn’t be crumbly or fall apart, it should be easy to manipulate.
  3. Place in bowl and set aside.
  4. Next, process all of the filling ingredients until you get a runny caramel-like look to the filling. There should be no date chunks left.
  5. Take your mini tins and about 1 Tbsp of crust. Roll the crust into a ball and press down into your tin, lining the sides and creating a little cup. Make sure the bottom is flat and there is enough room for your filling.
  6. Don’t leave the crust too thin or else they won’t hold the filling.
  7. Pour the filling into the cup until it hits the crust line.
  8. Do this for about 8-9 cups.
  9. Place the filled cups on a baking tray and bake for about 35 minutes.
  10. Crust should be golden, and middle should be cooked.
  11. Let sit for 15 minutes to solidify.
