  • About

This almond-and-jam-filled tart is all but a national treasure in England and is, possibly, the ultimate teatime sweet. Though it’s named for the town in Derbyshire where it’s likely that it was first introduced, its exact origins are unknown. You can use different jams or fruits and coat it with a sugary glaze, though if you did, Mrs. Patmore would likely call it by another name entirely.
