Lemon Honey Tart is beautiful. I like food to look good and to many, it’s all about how it looks, but this also tastes good. It’s light, pretty and a little complicated, but worth the effort for a special’ish dessert.

  3. Slice 1 lemon into very thin slices, retaining any juices.
  4. Place lemon slices and retained juice into a small sauce pan, add one tablespoon of water and bring to a boil, cook for 4 minutes, or until all the juice has reduced to half. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  5. Add sugar and honey to cooled lemon slices, stir to combine and set aside until the sugar and honey have almost liquefied, the juices should be almost clear.
  6. Prepare egg mixture. Add 3 whole eggs and two egg yolks to a mixing bowl and whisk with a wire whisk until frothy. Add flour, corn starch and salt, and whisk to combine.
  7. Reserve 6 - 8 nice slices of lemon and set aside. Mix the remainder of the lemon mixture into the egg mixture. Blend well to combine with eggs and pour into prepared tart shell with a removable bottom. Top with reserved lemon slices.
