Salted Honey Tart Crust Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal also called almond flour
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup berry jam
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • powdered sugar to taste


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.

Filling Instructions

  • 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.
