Honey tart


For the dough

  • In a bowl add the flour, icing sugar, salt, and the ice-cold butter cut into cubes.
  • Wear gloves, crumble the mixture with your hands, and break down the butter until the flour becomes yellow like wet sand. Attention! You have to wear gloves so that the butter does not melt!
  • Add the egg, the ice-cold water, and mix until your mixture thickens and you get an elastic dough.
  • Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour to rest.
  • Remove and allow 10 minutes for the dough to start softening.
  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • Spread a piece of parchment paper onto your working surface and dust it with a little flour.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out the frozen dough and place it onto the parchment paper.
  • Dust it with flour, cover it with another piece of parchment paper, and roll it out well with the rolling pin.
  • If the parchment paper creases, add more flour and keep rolling out with the rolling pin.
  • Remove the parchment paper, wrap the dough onto the rolling pin, and transfer it into a buttered and floured 24 cm springform pan.
  • Press the dough well with your hands, so that it sticks to the sides.
  • Cut the dough all around so that it has a 2 cm height. You can make cookies with the remaining dough.
  • With a fork, prick the dough’s base on several spots.
  • Spread plastic wrap and add legumes as pie weights, so that your tart won’t rise.
  • Fold the plastic wrap’s edges inwards and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, take out the pie weights, and put it again in the oven, for 15 minutes. Attention! You cannot cook the legumes that you used as pie weights. You can only use them again as pie weights for your tarts.
  • Remove from the oven, spread the whole surface of the tart with the egg wash (an egg yolk diluted in 1 tablespoon water) and bake for 5 more minutes, until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and allow 10-20 minutes for your tart to cool.

For the filling

  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 150ο C (300ο F) set to fan.
  • Place a large saucepan over low heat and add the honey with the maple syrup to get slightly hot. Be careful, do not let it boil!
  • Remove from the heat and add the breadcrumbs, the lemon zest and juice, the cinnamon, the vanilla extract, the ginger, the salt, and the butter.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until the breadcrumbs absorb the whole syrup.
  • Add the filling over the tart and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the tart cool well on a rack.
  • Serve with yogurt and sweet kumquats.
