    Cecily Parsley's Note:

    This is an unusual and tasty Yorkshire dessert hand-copied from a book called "Mastering Herbalism." I have fresh spearmint in my garden, but currants can't be found locally. I substituted a nice, chunky blackcurrant jam, and reduced the cup of sugar by half.

    1. 1
      Sift the flour, white sugar and salt together, and loosely work in the egg yolks, butter and lemon rind. Add enough water to roll the dough into a ball.
    2. 2
      Chill for at least 1 hour in refrigerator; roll out in two sheets, filling 6 tart shells with one, reserving the other for the tart coverings.
    3. 3
      Mix the spearmint with the currants and the brown sugar and fill each tart with it. Cover the remaining pastry, pressing the lower and upper crusts together with a fork and bake in a preheated 450° oven until golden brown.
