Deconstructed salted honey pie

Welcome to the United Sweets of America – an Instagram collaboration and dessert journey through the American states. I joined late. I was the last participant, as a matter of fact. And obtained the only state left: Wyoming. As my knowledge regarding the culinary tradition of Wyoming is quite limited, I decided to consult my jolly good friend Google. I was informed that there are no iconic Wyoming desserts, but that the state is famous for hiking and honey. If I have any Wyoming readers, please feel free to let me know whether this holds true. Anyway, s’mores and salted honey pie were suggested. I went for the latter one. Well, my version thereof. And it turned out absolutely delicious. My entire family thought so, and we’ll be forever grateful to sweet Casey for this collaboration and the possibility of discovering our new favorite pudding.

Mix 40 g melted butter with 60 g honey, 15 g sugar, 1 tsp cornstarch, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 egg and a pinch of fleur de sel. Add 1 tsp apple cider vinegar and 40 g crème fraîche. Transfer to a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 25-30 minutes at 150°C. Allow to cool completely in the fridge. Taste with fleur de sel prior to serving.

Crumble 1 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp honey into 4 tbsp whole-wheat flour. Bake for 6-8 minutes at 225°C.

Marinate thin apple slices in lemon juice and honey. Microwave for 30 seconds, until the slices are soft enough to be folded into roses.

Serve the baked custard, crumbles and apple roses with whipped cream and bee pollen as well as plum and melon spheres. Decorate with rose petals.

  1. I always enjoy your posts and creations, but I think in American English you may mean “deconstructed” as opposed to “decomposed.” Keep up the good work!

  2. Thank you, dear Walter, for your kind words and valuable input. Maybe I should change the wording 🧐 What do you think?

  3. I suggest because, though technically correct, decomposing is more frequently associated with the process of a dead organism breaking down. If you have never heard it, Monty Python’s brilliant “Decomposing Composers” song serves as a funny example. Just sayin’
