The Buzz About Honey
The honey adds a delightful flavor note to this classic recipe. But I didn’t want to use just any honey. Pardon the pun, but have you heard the recent “buzz” about honey? It’s come to my attention that you have to be very careful about the source of you foods these days and that includes honey.
A Honey I Can Trust
That’s why I feel confident in using Sue Bee Honey. At the Sioux Honey Association Co-op, their farmers own the company, so they control their own supply chain. No middlemen. Every drop of their honey – Sue Bee Honey and Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey – comes straight from their very own co-op members’ hives. They know each and every single beekeeper by name!
Go online to SiouxHoney.com and you’ll get to meet some of them and hear their stories in their own words. The co-op has been around for almost 100 years! Many members have multiple generations of beekeeping in the family – it’s their family pride and livelihood. You know you can trust the quality.
Why I Love Sue Bee Honey
• I chose Sue Bee Clover Honey for this recipe because it’s a classic, enjoyed by families for nearly a century.
• Sue Bee is “pure, premium, U.S. Grade A honey” that’s tested for the highest quality in purity, clarity and flavor.
• The Sue Bee honey bear is a breakfast table staple.
How to Make Honey Lemon Tartlets with Flowers
Step 1: Make the crust. Cut cold butter in cubes and add to dry ingredients in a food processor as you pulse until a ball forms.
Step 2: Press dough into mini tart pans.
Step 3: Whisk together filling ingredients and pour into prepared crusts.
Step 4: Bake tartlets, let cool and garnish.
Garnishing these sweet little Honey Lemon Tartlets is the best part. This is where you can get creative. Dust them with powdered sugar, then add your fresh berries and edible flowers. Create whatever design you wish. Place them on one side or in the middle or all around the edges.
A word about edible flowers: Make sure you ask your florist which flowers are indeed edible. I couldn’t find edible pansies so I used petunias which aren’t actually edible but also not toxic. I used them as a garnish and removed them before eating the tartlets.
I hope you will try these beautiful little Honey Lemon Tartlets with Flowers. They’re perfect for a dinner party or barbecue to celebrate the holiday weekend. See below for the recipe. Enjoy!

For the crust
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Place all of the crust ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mixture forms a ball. (If you don't have a food processor, use a fork or pastry blender to mash the butter into dry ingredients until crumbs form. Then use your hands to form dough into a ball.)

For the filling
- Whisk together egg yolks, sour cream, honey, sugar, lemon juice, zest, and salt until combined and smooth. Pour into prepared crusts. Bake until center is almost set, 25-30 minutes. Let them completely cool on wire rack. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with berries and edible flowers.
