Mini tarts that taste like sugar-caramel-fleur-de sel-and-pecan pie. Does that sound tempting to you?
My hubby and my kids love sugar pie and pecan pie. I wanted to come up with a healthier version of these two delicious and ever popular classics. The last thing I wanted was loads of corn syrup or mountains and mountains of white or brown sugar. Why is there so much in every recipe? When you sweeten with date puree, you’re automatically adding fibre… and that’s what makes all the difference.
Now that my dates for cooking and the ones that taste of caramel for snacking (yes, you read that right) have entered the market, I had no choice but to tease you with this typically festive and mouth-watering recipe.
Does this sound tempting to you? Pecan and date tarts with a smooth, creamy texture that are just like sugar pie and taste of salted caramel … but with NO ADDED REFINED SUGAR? Tarts that are both wholesome and high in fibre, and they’re also magically delicious. Introducing my Mini Pecanette Tarts. Simply irresistible!
I can confirm that they’re scrumptious and have everything going for them. They contain no refined sugar, not a single teaspoon, just fruit and nuts. Yumski! Plus, you could easily eat them for breakfast they’re that healthy!
Just between you and me, even if you don’t know how to bake a pie, you’ll have no trouble making this one. Whether you make them using the recipe for a homemade crust (with or without gluten) provided in the Fairy-of-the-Fields and Caramel Blue Fairy recipes or you decide to keep it simple with store-bought pastry shells, these tarts take no time at all to make.
Which dates to I recommend? I suggest you try my dates that taste of caramel (that’s their natural taste).
