Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • Lucinda Scala Quinn's Pate Brisee, Walnut Variation
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten, plus 1 lightly beaten egg for brushing
  • 3/4 cup acacia, or other mild honey
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest, plus 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
  • Fine sanding sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a 9 1/8-by-1 3/8-inch tart ring on a baking sheet lined with parchment; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk of dough to 1/8 inch thick; cut into a 14-inch round. Fit into tart ring; trim overhang to 1/2 inch. Refrigerate while making filling.

  2. Whisk together 4 eggs, the honey, granulated sugar, butter, orange zest and juice, salt, and flour in a large bowl. Stir in walnuts. Pour into tart shell.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out remaining disk of dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut into an 11-inch round. Cut 5 slits for vents. Drape over filling. Trim overhang to 1 inch; fold over bottom crust. Press edges to seal, and tuck into ring. Brush with remaining beaten egg, and sprinkle with sanding sugar.

  4. Bake until a knife inserted in one of the vents comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Transfer sheet to a wire rack; let cool completely. Remove ring before serving. Can be stored, covered, overnight.
