Mix together plain flour, salt and sugar in a bowl.

Stir in the coarsely chopped walnuts.
Add the double cream and simmer over a low heat, stirring, until the caramel combines with the cream.
Simmer for approx. 10 minutes to reduce
Stir in the forest honey and cool. Spread filling over the base.

Decorate: fold protruding rim over filling, brush with water. Lay lid on top, press edges together with fork and prick.

Bake: approx. 40 minutes towards the bottom of the oven preheated to 200'C. Remove, cool slightly and release sides of tin. Slide pie onto wire rack and leave to cool.

Keeping time: when foil-wrapped, will keep in refrigerator for approx. 2 weeks. The pie is easier to cut on the day after baking.
