  Categories: English
       Yield: 4 Servings
  
       8 oz Puff pastry
            FILLING
            Strawberry jam
       4 x  Egg yolks
       2 x  Egg whites
       4 oz Butter
       4 oz Sugar
            Almond essence
  
   Set oven to 425/F or Mark 7. Roll out the pastry on a
   floured surface and line a wide shallow dish or a pie
   plate. Spread the pastry with a thick layer of
   strawberry jam. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl,
   mix in the egg yolks, the beaten egg whites and the
   almond essence. Spread this egg mixture over thejam in
   the dish bake for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to
   350/F or Mark 4 for 20 minutes. The filling is meant
   to remain soft and is not intended to set.
   
   This recipe first happened by mistake, when the cook
   at the Rutland Arms, Bakewell put the egg mixture on
   top of the jam instead of onto the pastry for a
   special strawberry tart. The Bakewell Pudding Shop
   claim to be the sole purveyors of the authentic
   pudding, with the recipe handed down only to members
   of the family.
