Salted Honey Pie

salted honey pie
So in one week I was gifted honey, purchased honey from a friend at the farmers market and have loads of honey at the purple farmstand which left me craving a way to move some honey.

Sure I'm big on buttered toast with little honey as a guilty pleasure or peanut butter toast with honey but currently I'm toaster-less so the next best thing I thought was a Honey Pie.

I was first introduced to this divine treat by yet another farmers market friend. She had me addicted at first bite. And if ever you're craving a honey pie and don't have any honey in the house run (don't walk) to the Constellation Collective in Collingswood to get the most fun lovingly baked honey pie on earth.

But if you've got the honey...or you plan to swing by the purple farmstand and grab a jar of honey....OR you're planning to start a new Thanksgiving must-have Pie tradition...bake yourself up this honey pie.

  2. Do you blind bake or parbake the crust at all or is it raw and baked with the custard? Looks amazing!

    1. I don’t do any pre-baking of the crust. Just pop it all in together. Enjoy!
