   ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ Notes and Credits <
   From “The Good Fare and Cheer of Old England” by Joan
   Parry Dutton 1960, Published by Reynal & Company, Inc.
   It is said that Maids of Honour cakes date from a day
   in 1525 when Henry VIII saw Maids of Honour for one of
   his six Queens eating a platter of cakes with such
   joyous relish that he tried one himself, and found it
   very good.  Another tradition says they were named for
   Queen Elizabeth’s Maids of Honour when she lived at
   Richmond Palace. From "The Cooking of the British
   Isles, by Adrian Bailey, Time-Life Books, 1969
   Several towns in Britain make small, delectable tarts
   known as Maids of Honour, but none are so rich in
   flavor and therefore so famous as Richmond Maids of
   Honour, which come from Richmond, a suburb of London,
   and are said to have been invented for the court of
   Henry VIII in the 16th Century.
