For the Pie
For the Glaze

We used a Le Creuset pie dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  2. Line a pie tin with greased baking paper. Fill with the rolled shortcrust pastry leaving the edges to overhang.
  3. Prick holes in the pastry with a fork then bake for 15 minutes, until the pastry starts to golden. Remove from oven, trim the edges while hot and set aside to cool.
  4. To make the filling place butter, honey, sugar, tahini, eggs, ground almonds, vanilla and salt to a blender or stand alone mixer and mix/blend until smooth.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pie crust then bake for 60-70 mins until just set, the filling should have a slight wobble. You may need to cover the pie crust with tinfoil if it browns too quickly. Let cool and refrigerate to set.
  6. Mix the honey and black tahini together to make graze. Brush the top of the chilled pie. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds and a pinch of sea salt.
