Rhubarb Maids of Honour Tarts

Rhubarb Maids of Honour Tarts

One of the stories of how these tarts (originally without the rhubarb) came about tells of Henry VIII discovering the recipe in a locked chest at Hampton Court and presenting it to Anne Boleyn, who was then lady-in-waiting to Henry's wife, Catherine of Aragon. The tarts are very moreish little numbers - and presumably that's how Henry felt about the ladies-in-waiting as well!
