Preheat oven to 200c fan-forced (220 non-fan). Warm the 75g of honey until runny (do this in the microwave in 20 second blurts). Cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest until pale, beat in the egg yolk together with the corn flour until combined. Fold in the almond meal and the warm honey.

Cut the peaches in half then each half into 3, so you have 6 portions per peach. Place these on top of the tart cut side up. Brush the border with beaten egg. If warm pop the tarts in the fridge for 15 minutes before baking.
