The filling is custard-like with a wonderfully creamy honey flavor and texture. And the flaky sea salt on top adds the perfect contrast to the sweet filling for an absolutely divine bite of pie.

Blind baking pie crust is essential when baking filled pies, such as this Salted Honey Pie. Blind baking involves placing the crust in the pie pan, chilling the dough, then baking just the crust until it starts to brown.

Wait until you're ready to serve this pie before you sprinkle it lightly with flaky sea salt or the salt will absorb into the pie and you won't be able to see those nice flakes on top.

The pie dough can be made in advance and either refrigerated for up to two days (either unrolled or rolled and fitted into the pan), or frozen (either unrolled of rolled and fitted in the pan) for up to two months.
