12 oz honey
4 oz sugar
#2 chopped nuts,any kind
4 oz cream

Bake pie shell make sure that the dough goes up the sides so the batter doesn't leak underneath.
Place all ingredients except cream and nuts unto a heavy bottom sauce pan. Bring to a full boil stir for 3 minutes. Turn off stove whisk in cream and stir in nuts. Pour unto pie shell. Bake in oven at 375 until it bubbles, Let cool completely. You can cut them in different shapes. Also you can bake this recipe as a pie or baby tarts instead of in a sheet. We like using Macadamia nuts but any nuts will be yummy.
