For these tarts, I used tiny tin molds. The filling is very sweet and the tarts don't need to be huge... they're kind of like one bite butter tarts!
Pour 1/2 cup sesame oil over 3 cups of all purpose flour and mix with a fork until the mixture becomes pebbly.
Dissolve about 1/2 teaspoon sea salt in cold water and stir into the oil/flour mixture until you obtain a workable dough. Don't over mix or the pastry becomes tough.
Form the dough into three balls. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Combine 1 cup maple syrup, 1/2 cup raisins (soaked in apple juice until they plump up and can be squeezed), 2 teaspoons tahini, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional, of course) and 1 tablespoon kuzu dissolved in a very small amount of cold apple juice. Place in a pot over medium heat and stir until the kuzu is dissolved.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface or parchment paper. I used a drinking glass to shape the dough. Press into a muffin tin or other mold.
Half fill the pastry shells and bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is lightly browned.
