- 4 large eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/8 tsp. salt

- For the crust: Mix butter and powdered sugar in a mixer using paddle attachment until well blended. Add egg and mix until well combined. Add salt and vanilla. Add flour and mix on low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
- Press dough evenly flat onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Place dough in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes or until well chilled.
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Meanwhile, chill the work surface on which you will be rolling the dough by placing 1 or 2 cookie sheets filled with ice cubes on the space. Set aside a 9-inch pie tin.
- Sprinkle the chilled area lightly with flour and roll dough into a circle large enough to cover entire pie tin.
- Put dough into place and remove excess. Press dough into any cracks or tears. Prick bottom and sides with a fork and place in oven.
- Place in oven and bake for about 13 minutes or until golden and edges are light brown. Remove from oven and set aside.
- Reset oven temperature to 325 F.
- For the filling: In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients, whisk eggs vigorously for 1 minute. Add sugar and honey and whisk again vigorously. Add buttermilk, vanilla and salt and whisk to combine.
- Pour mixture into pie crust. Place in the oven and bake until the pie is set and no longer wiggles in center when tapped, about 45 minutes.
- Let pie cool.
- For the topping: In a saucepan combine brown sugar, honey, cream and butter. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, salt, pecans and cinnamon.
- Spread onto pie. Serve.
