Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods
Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.
With an electric mixer, beat together butter, honey and almond extract. Add flour and blend until mixture forms a dough. Gather into a ball and place in the prepared tart pan. Using your fingers, spread dough evenly onto bottom and up sides of pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack.
In a bowl, beat all filling ingredients until mixture forms stiff peaks. Spread filling evenly over cooled crust.
Gently toss fruit with honey. Arrange fruit on top of filling in a decorative pattern. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 3 hours.
