Honey Almond Pie

Serves 6 to 8

 

1 cup flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 stick of butter melted and cooled

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup cream

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup honey

1/8 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup toasted almonds roughly chopped

1 egg, whisked

1/8 teaspoon almond extract

Whipped cream for serving

 

Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Mix in the butter and vanilla until you have a smooth paste. Press the dough into a 9” tart pan, starting with the sides, trying to keep an even layer. Finish with the base of the tart, and place the tart shell into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill before baking for 20 minutes, until light golden brown. Set the tart shell aside to cool. 

To make the tart filling, combine the cream, sugar, honey and salt in a small saucepan over low heat. Warm the mixture until the sugar is dissolved and honey and cream are combined. Set the pot aside to cool. Separate 1/4 cup of the chopped almonds and pound them with a mortar and pestle until you have a paste. Set this aside. Once the cream and honey have cooled, whisk in the egg and almond extract. Add the pounded almonds to the pot, trying to break up any chunks, followed by the chopped almonds. Pour the filling into the baked tart shell. Bake the tart for 30-35 minutes, until it’s just set. 

Allow the tart to cool before slicing and serve with softly whipped cream.
