A variation of the classic Border tart, this is from Ecclefechan – a town in the south-west of the Borders – but has the addition of walnuts and cinnamon. You can substitute pecans for the walnuts and indeed, to my mind, an Ecclefechan tart is leagues better than America’s pecan pie.

Serve this cold for tea – or barely warm with a dollop of whipped cream and perhaps a scattering of chopped toasted walnuts on top.
