  • 1 ¼ cups All-purpose flour 
  • ½ cup Sifted powdered sugar 
  • ¼ tsp. Table salt 
  • Minced zest of 1 lemon 
  • 1 Stick cold unsalted butter, cubed (½ cup) 
  • 1 Egg yolk (reserve egg white)


  • 1 Egg white 
  • 3 Eggs 
  • ¼ cup All-purpose flour 
  • 3 tbsp. Cornstarch 
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups Whole milk 
  • cup Honey 
  • 2 tbsp. Unsalted butter, cubed 
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ cup Purchased or homemade lemon curd 


  • ¼ cup Apple or apricot jelly 
  • Juice of ½ lemon 
  • ½ pint fresh blueberries 
  • ½ pt. Fresh raspberries 
  • ½ pt. Fresh blackberries 
  • Fresh mint leaves


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Using nonstick spray, coat a 9-inch tart pan and its removable bottom.
  • Process the 1 1/4 cups flour, powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and lemon zest in a food processor until combined. Add 1 stick cubed butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend in the egg yolk; pulse until dough is crumbly. (It won't hold together.) Press dough over the bottom and up the sides of the prepared tart pan. Prick dough with a fork; bake until crust is golden, 12–15 minutes, then cool completely.
  • Stir together egg white and lemon curd for the filling in a bowl; whisk in eggs. Combine the 1/4 cup flour, cornstarch, and salt in a second bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to the egg mixture.
  • Bring milk and honey to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Slowly whisk some of the milk mixture into the egg-curd mixture to temper, then return the mixture to the pan. Cook filling over medium heat until it's thick and bubbly, 3–5 minutes. Remove pan from heat; add the 2 Tbsp. butter and juice of 1/2 lemon, whisking until smooth. Pour custard into cooled crust; cover and chill until set, about 4 hours.
  • Melt jelly with juice of 1/2 lemon in a saucepan over medium heat. Spread three-quarters of the glaze over the filling in the tart shell. Arrange berries over glaze. Dab berries with remaining glaze. Garnish tart with mint leaves. Serve tart within 1–2 hours.
