Greengage Tart
Pies and Pastries

Open tart with filling of sliced greengages with sugar (Soyer 1845, etc).

GE Farrow's 'The Wallypug of London' (1898) has;
    For thy dear sake all cakes I shun
    Smeared o’er with jam. No apricot
    Or greengage tart my heart hath won;
    Their sweetness doth but cloy and clot.
