Alexandertorte, also known as Alexander Torte or Aleksander Torte, is a dessert that was conceived to commemorate a visit of Tsar Alexander III in Riga. Today, Riga is the capital of Latvia. A similar dessert exists in Denmark, and is known as hindbærsnitte.
Consisting of pastry strips filled with raspberry preserves or raspberry jam, it is traditionally eaten as a lunch or dinner dessert, but it can also be served at tea. It should be made a day or so before it is planned to serve, because the icing must be hard before the torte is cut.
