Salted Honey Tart 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 side of a greased 11" tart pan with a removable bottom. Be sure the dough goes all the way to the top of the side 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.
Increase oven temperature to 375 F.
Using an electric mixer, mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix in almond meal until fully combined.
Mix in eggs until fully combined.
Mix in vanilla, flour, and salt until just combined to complete the frangipane.
Spread jam evenly over pre-baked tart crust.
Top with frangipane.
Distribute almonds evenly on top of the frangipane layer.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the filling is firmly set and lightly browned. If it's not done at 25 minutes, cover the edge of the tart with foil or a pie guard and return to the oven until set.
When cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve or store covered at room temperature for up to four days.
