Here's a good question from Amanda. Can you help her?
My boyfriend has been talking about these small tarts his dad used to bring home from a Scottish bakery when he was a kid. We figured out that they're called "Fern Cakes," but I can't find a good recipe to save my life! Does anyone have a Scottish grandmother with a good recipe for Fern Cakes?
Can anyone help Amanda recreate these little tarts for her boyfriend? Here are a few somewhat helpful links, but they're all we could find. Can you do better?
• Keptie Bakery Fern Cakes at Flickr
• Fern Tarts recipe
• Fern Tarts at Uncle Phaedrus, finder of lost recipes
• Fern Tarts at Cyber Kitchen (This may be the most helpful; they suggest just making Bakewell Tarts and drawing a fern on top!)
