Dates, walnuts and pecans is all it takes to make these nutty, gooey and guilt-free treats.
All set to get bowled over ….right?
Ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:
This recipe makes (2) 4” tarts or (18) mini tartlets
* double the recipe to make (1) 9” tart
Walnut Tart Shell
1 3/4 cup walnuts
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups large medjool dates, soaked for at least 30 minutes
about 1/2 cup pecans
In a food processor combine the ingredients for the Walnut Tart Shell. Blend until the pieces are broken down and stick together when pressed. Spoon evenly into tart pans or an oiled mini muffin tin (for tartlets) and press down gently to create a thin, even crust on the bottom and sides. Place in freezer while making the filling.
Place the soaked dates in a food processor or powerful blender. Add about 1-2 tbsp fresh water and blend until smooth and gooey, scraping down the sides often. Spoon or pipe filling into chilled crusts and top with pecans. Place in refrigerator and allow tartlets to set up for at least 1 hour.
Note:several people have mentioned difficulty in removing the tarts from the muffin tin. If they don’t want to come out, stick the pan in the freezer for about 30 minutes until shells harden. Remove and run a knife around the edge of each tart. Using the knife, pop tarts out from the bottom.
