Goat Cheese and Honey Heirloom Tomato Tart
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Honey

1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
6oz round of goat cheese (i used https://www.fireflyfarms.com/shop/merrygoatround)
2 large heirloom tomatoes
Large pinch of Flakey Salt
Handful Fresh Basil
Step 1 In a cold stainless steel bowl, or really whatever you can find... Combine flour and salt. Add butter and honey, and cut with pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Step 2 Add ice water in a slow, steady stream. Incorporate with a fork until dough holds together without being wet or sticky; be careful not over mix. To test, squeeze a small amount together: If it is crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Step 3 Divide dough into two equal balls. Flatten each ball into a disc and wrap in plastic. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill at least 1 hour. Dough may be stored, frozen, up to 1 month.
PreHeat oven to 375*F
Roll out 1 disk of dough and press it into a tart pan or pie dish, freeze for 30 min.
