Salty Honey Pie

Salty Honey Pie

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours | Makes: 1 pie

By Melissa and Emily Elsen.


  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp white cornmeal
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup of Rigoni di Asiaogo Honey (Acacia or Forest or Chestnut or Orange or Wildflowers)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 or 2 Tbsp flake sea salt for finishing (Maldon is a good choice)


All of the mixing can be done by hand, or with an electric mixer.

  1. Melt butter and combine with the sugar, salt and cornmeal to make a thick paste.
  2. Add Rigoni di Asiago Honey, vanilla and vinegar and mix together.
  3. Fold in the eggs, add the cream and blend.
  4. Pour the filling into a pre-baked pie shell and bake at 350 F for 45 to 60 minutes. The filling will puff up like a marshmallow and the center will be just slightly wobbly.
  5. Once cooled (at least one hour), finish with a sprinkling of flake sea salt.
  6. Slice and serve with freshly whipped cream.
