The ruling of the monastery had a great influence over the lives of the surrounding community, which did not gain its independence until the 14th Century. Although the townsfolk and countryfolk sometimes suffered under their monastic rulers, they also inherited certain advantages, one of which is shown in this recipe. This proves that it is not just a legend that monks enjoyed good food. The recipe: Cream the butter and sugar. Mix the almonds, cocoa, cinnamon, flour and baking powder together. Add the milk, beaten egg white and dry ingredients to the creamed butter mixture. Work these together quickly until a soft dough is formed, leaving the sides of the bowl clean. Cover and leave in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Line a buttered flan ring or tin with 3/4 of the dough. Cover the bottom with jam. Use the remaining dough to make strips, then criss-cross lattice fashion over the tart. Brush with beaten egg yolk. Bake for 45 minutes at 180 oC. Serve cold.
