This colorful tart is easy to prepare, requires no oven, and is the perfect dessert any night of the week.
  • 2½ cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 1½ sleeves)
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ⅓ cup honey, plus more for serving
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 peach, nectarine, or plum, sliced
  • fresh thyme, for garnish
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To make the crust. In a small bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, butter, and honey and mix until combined. Dump the mixture out into the prepared pan and use your hands to press the crumbs into a rough (8x12 inch) rectangle, about ¼ inch thick. Transfer to the freezer to chill.
  3. To make the custard. In a large pot, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch until fully combined. Add the honey, milk, and sea salt. Set the pot over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens and easily coats the back of a wooden spoon, 3-5 minutes. Watch closely, milk tends to boil over. Remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla and butter. Let cool 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the crust from the freezer and spread the custard over top, going almost to the edge of the crust. Cover and transfer to the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours or up to 2 days.
  5. Just before serving, arrange the fruit over the custard. Drizzle with honey and garnish with thyme. Slice and enjoy!
