Queen Mary's Tart

Legend has it that this tart was named for Mary, Queen of Scots (but I've never really researched whether it's true!) All I know is that it is a very old Scots recipe

8 oz puff pastry
2 generously heaped tablespoons of jam (I like raspberry)
2 oz granulated sugar
2 oz butter
2 oz chopped mixed peel
1 heaped tablespoon sultanas
2 large eggs, beaten lightly

Set oven to 425F or Gas mark 7. roll out pastry onto a floured surface and line a 7 inch greased flan tin. Spread the jam over the pastry base. Melt the sugar and butter in a saucepan over a very gentle heat. Add the mixed peel and sultanas. Remove from heat and mix in the beaten eggs, a bit ast a time. Pour the mix into the pastry case and bake for 20-25 minutes until the filling is set and golden brown. Serve hot or cold as a pudding with whipped cream or cold, sliced as a treat with a cup of tea!

Oh my, does that sound divine! And... not too difficult, either. My gran used to make jam tarts with the little bits of pastry left over from making pasties. I know it's a different pastry altogether - but the idea of jam tarts made me remember. I have copied this into my file of things to try. Thanks! Sandyj
