     Bring the water to a boil with the saffron, then allow to cool.
  Chill. Sift the flour with the sugar and the salt.  Cut in the butter
  with a pastry blender or two knives.  Work in the egg yolk and
  saffron-tinted water. When the mixture is well blended, roll out on a
  floured board. Line four pastry shells with the pastry, and bake for
  8 to 10 minutes at 400f. Lower the oven temperature to 350f. Put 1
  tsp chopped marrow, a small pinch of ginger and sugar and 1 large or
  two small egg yolks into each pastry shell and bake in the oven until
  the egg yolks are just set. Serve hot or cold (bleah).
     Historically possible Variation: use duck eggs.
