Gabrielle's Honey Pie

Recipe photo courtesy of Marcus Nilsson

For this pie's crumbly crust, Gabrielle Langholtz uses lard rendered from farm-raised pork. For a similarly memorable pie, use leaf lard; it comes from the fat around the pig's kidneys and is famed for yielding flaky baked goods. You can order it from your local butcher.

Total Time Prep Yield






The TV version used 1 cup honey for the filling and a pinch of nutmeg. The filling wasn't chilled before baking, the crust wasn't blind-baked before adding the filling, and the pie was baked for 1 hour.

Cook's Notes

Make ahead: Dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw before using.
