A sweet tart named after a small village in Dumfries & Galloway (South-West Scotland) and sometimes known as Butter Tarts or Border Tart. They are butter tarts of a style once common in Lancashire, but now rarely seen.
Tarts can be individual or flan-sized and traditionally were baked with a filling of butter, eggs, lemon zest, cinnamon, raisins and roughly-chopped walnuts.
A version of the tart has been/is made by Sainsbury, the supermarket chain.
