Honey Pie

Recipe for traditional Honey Pie is not easy, so I wouldn’t recommend it to beginners. However, if you still decide to devote this Honey pie a little effort and time, you will be delighted with the taste of honey-flavored dough and excellent cream.

This old-fashioned recipe I picked up from my grandmother’s notebook, but after recent events, there are some other associations in me now. I made this pie on March 19, 2020, on Friday. Even though we were in the middle of a Korona virus pandemic, I decided that we would have cakes like every other Friday.

I planned to publish the recipe on the blog on Sunday morning, but on that fateful morning, on March 22nd, 2020, we were awakened by the earthquake that destroyed the center of Zagreb.

We escaped from the houses, and like it wasn’t enough, it start snowing. When we returned inside after a while, this pie was waiting for us on the table and will now remain a symbol of this unfortunate event.
