  • 1 ¼ cups All-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. Table salt
  • Minced zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup Powdered sugar


  • 1 Stick unsalted butter, cold, cubed (8 Tbsp.) 
  • 1 Egg, separated


  • ½ cup Purchased lemon curd
  • 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 a lemon


  • ¼ cup Apple or apricot jelly  
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 cup Fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup Fresh Blackberries
  • 1 cup Fresh Blueberries 
  • Mint sprigs


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom with nonstick spray.

The Crust

  • Process 1¼ cups flour, powdered sugar, ¼ tsp. salt, and zest in a food processor until combined.
  • Add 1 stick butter, and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add in egg yolk and pulse until dough starts to clump around the blade. Press dough into bottom and up sides of prepared pan, and dock dough with a fork. Bake crust until golden, 12–15 minutes; cool completely.

The Filling

  • Whisk together lemon curd, reserved egg white, and 3 eggs in a large bowl.
  • Combine 1/4 cup flour, cornstarch, and pinch of salt in a second bowl; whisk into lemon curd mixture.
  • Heat milk and honey in a large saucepan over medium to a simmer. Add 1 cup of the milk mixture to egg mixture, whisking constantly. Drizzle egg mixture into milk mixture, bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook until thick and bubbly, 3–5 minutes. Off heat, add 2 Tbsp. butter to pan; whisk until smooth. Pour filling into cooled crust, smooth top, and cover with plastic wrap. Chill tart until set, at least 4 hours.

The Glaze and Berries

  • Melt jelly and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat, then brush on top of tart. Top tart with berries, brush with more glaze, and serve within 1–2 hours.
