Method: 
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake empty pie crust for 20 minutes and then cool. In a medium bowl, whisk together half-and-half, 1/3 cup of the honey, vanilla, eggs and mascarpone. Pour into pie crust and bake until just set in the middle, 35 to 40 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely. Cover and chill for several hours or overnight.

In a small bowl, stir together remaining 2 tablespoons honey, rosemary, thyme and 1 teaspoon water. Add fruit, toss gently to coat and pile onto tart (or fan decoratively over the top). Drizzle with any leftover juices and then slice and serve.
