Tart Filling– Toasting the nuts: Arrange an oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 350°F. Scatter the pine nuts and chopped walnuts on a small, rimmed baking sheet. Bake the nuts, shaking halfway through, until they’re golden brown and fragrant, 6 to 9 minutes. After 5 minutes, keep a watchful eye as pine nuts burn easily! Remove and set aside to cool.

Cook the filling– In a small saucepan, combine the honey, sugar, heavy cream, More Than Olives olive oil, and syrup. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring gently with a heatproof spatula to dissolve the sugar. Increase the heat to medium and bring the mixture to a rapid simmer. Cook the mixture without stirring, swirling the pan often, until it has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. This is an approximate end point—the idea is to cook off some moisture, as well as make sure all the ingredients are well combined, not to cook it until it’s caramel. The mixture will still be quite liquid. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the kosher salt, vanilla, and ¼ teaspoon of the rosemary. Add the toasted nuts and stir well to combine. Set it aside.

Fill the tart and bake– Place the cooled, parbaked tart crust on a large foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Pour the filling mixture into the tart, distributing all the nuts across the bottom so the liquid pools evenly around them. Bake until the filling around the nuts is bubbling and the surface is deep golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set the tart aside to cool slightly.

Top with rosemary salt: While the tart is still warm, in a small bowl, combine the flaky salt and the remaining ¼ teaspoon of rosemary and rub between your fingertips for a few seconds to release the fragrant oils. Sprinkle the mixture over the tart. Let the tart cool completely. It will set as it cools.

Serve– When ready to serve, pop the tart out of the ring. Slide a thin metal spatula between the tart base and the bottom of the tart to loosen it, then carefully slide it onto a serving plate and cut it into wedges.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
