Jam Tart

Make this jam tart with your favorite jam - I like using orange marmalade. The jam is star of the tart, but coming in a close second is the salted honey crust. It's sweet, crisp, and unexpected.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 7 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 ounces pine nuts ground in a food processor
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar

Salted Honey Crust Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in sugar and honey until fully combined.
  • Mix in flour and salt until just combined.
  • Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 11" tart pan with a removable bottom. Be sure the dough goes all the way to the top of the sides of the pan. It may fall a little during the baking and if it's already shy of the top, it will be even lower after the bake.
  • Use a fork to poke shallow holes all over the dough.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and remove from the oven to cool slightly.
