Runebergintorttu / Runeberg tart

Today is the birthday of Johan Ludvig Runeberg, a Finnish poet. Legend tells that that poet used to enjoy eating the tart with punsch.
Runeberg's tarts are typically eaten only in Finland and are generally available from the beginning of January to Runeberg's birthday on February 5. The tart is seasoned with almonds and rum and it usually weighs about 100 grams. There is usually raspberry jam in a sugar ring on the tart.
