"Brousse" in a recipe?

Good afternoon
In a French magazine I found a recipe: Tartelettes citronnees a la brousse  (sorry no accents).

My French/English dictionary gives "la brousse" as the bush - as in lost in the bush.
Can anyone tell me what brousse is in relation to food please?  The recipe calls for 200g which is to be crushed with a fork and then added to the lemon and egg mixture.

Many thanks

Mrs H

Corsican is better.

Nah, it is a badger hair shaving brush, often used in pies to give the mixture some consistency!!Devil [6]
