Just like apple tart, this is another ‘plate’ pie well-loved throughout Scotland. In Dundee it is always called a tart, even though the distinction elsewhere between tart and pie is often that a tart has no pastry lid. But for my parents it was always apple or rhubarb tart baked on a shallow enamel plate. Unless of course you went to a bakers (no one made these at home) and bought some dinky little rhubarb pies – shaped like a Scotch pie but sweet and oozing with pink syrupy juices.
