Auntie Margie’s recipe. She said this is a “recipe to treasure”.

Ingredients:

3 egg yolks

1 cup butter

2 tsp. rum

2 tsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. sour cream

2 cups flour

Mix butter and flour together. Beat egg yolks slightly, add cream, rum, and lemon. Beat this into the butter flour mixture, turn out onto floured board and shape into balls the size of big marbles. Chill overnight. Roll each into a square thickness of pie crust. In centre of each, put a tsp. of thick jam and walnut. Moisten edges and fold over into turn over. Bake mod. Oven 375deg.. When baked, put a spoon of meringue (made with 3 egg whites and sugar) on top of each and decorate with walnut. Bake again in slow oven until meringue is light brown.
