Better than treacle try this

Honey tart

* 5 oz 140g Plain flour
* 2 ½ oz 70g mixed hard marg and lard or all hard marg or butter
* 4oz 100g fresh breadcrumbs
* 7 – 8 tbsp runny honey (stand the jar in warm water to loosen)
* juice of ½ lemon
* a handful of roughly chopped walnuts

Cooking instructions

1. heat oven to 200C, gas 6
2. rub the fat into flour until it looks like breadcrumbs
3. bind to a soft but not sticky dough with a little cold water
4. roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin on a floured surface and line a flan tin about 8ins, 20cm diameter
5. chill while you are preparing the filling
6. mix the warmed honey, lemon juice and walnuts, breadcrums
7. place in the pastry case and use any left over pastry to make a lattice top or decorate the top
8. bake for about 25 – 30 mins until the pastry is golden
9. best served warm rather than hot / or you burn your tongue

* serve with cream although crème fraiche is a pleasant contrast to the sweetness of the tart

use any nuts you have except Peanuts
* leave out the lemon juice and add 1 tbsp of Seville orange marmalade
