Recipe: Salted Honey Pie

Recipe: Salted Honey Pie

Lindsay from Life, Love and Sugar shares one of her favorite recipes in this 2:56-minute video about how to make a salted honey pie that will win you contests and rave reviews. Quick... easy... amazing sweet and salty combo flavor. It's ideal for holiday time or any special occasion. The custard-like filling, with brown sugar and honey, oozes an amazing caramel flavor.  

Before you get started, take 3 minutes and watch the video for a quick overview:



Pre-heat oven to 375°F

Serves up to 10 slices depending on slice size


1 pie crust, refrigerated, unrolled onto your 8-inch or 9-inch pie dish. Crimp the edges to fit the ruffled spaces. Place it back in the fridge while you prep the filling

4 large egg yolks cracked into a bowl, whisked a bit, and set aside

Pour the next 4 ingredients into a stainless-steel saucepan and heat:

2 ½ cups or 600 ml of heavy whipping cream

1 cup or 144 grams of light brown sugar

1/3 of a cup of sifted corn starch

½ teaspoon of salt

After you blend egg yolks and filling, add these two ingredients:

½ cup or 120 ml of quality honey

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Garnish just before serving with:

Coarse sea salt flakes, sprinkled over the pie

Heat the heavy cream, sugar, corn starch and salt over medium heat, whisking until it thickens. You’ll want it to come to a full boil. Then remove it from the stove and pour some of it into the egg yolks you set aside. Whisk it in slowly, so you don’t heat the egg yolks so fast that you end up with scrambled eggs. As the egg yolk mixture cools, add the rest of the filling and whisk it evenly. Finally, add honey and vanilla extract and mix it all together. Set this filling aside and take the pie crust out of the fridge. Pour the filling into the pie crust and slide it into the oven at center rack. The pie will bake 40-45 minutes and will bubble and brown on top while in the oven.

When you remove it from the oven, leave it on the kitchen counter for about an hour before placing it in the fridge to get cold and firm. When you are ready to serve the pie, take it out of the fridge and sprinkle some fresh flaky sea salt on top. Don’t add salt until then or it will melt into the pie.
