  4. They look great but I think you need to change the title or the method as there are no cashews in your recipe.

  6. Oh my gosh, I'm so in! I love, love, love raw vegan desserts that aren't reliant on coconut oil :)

  7. About how many muffin tin sized tarts would this make? Trying to gage if I'd need to double the recipe before I start making it. :)
    (Maharishi- there are cashews in the filling AND optionally in the crust...)

  9. Jessica, with the recipe above I made the two tarts in cupcake tins. They're big tarts (as you can see by the nutritional info!), and I filled them pretty full. If you were to double the recipe, you would probably be able to get 5-6 cupcake tin sized tarts from it, depending on how full you made them. Let me know how they turn out!
