This is in reponse to a request for "Breakfast Munchies." I haven't tried it yet, but it does look interested and I plan to. I cannot remember where I found it. I did not include the 1 hour soaking time for the prunes in the time.
- 1 cup prunes, regular or 1 cup seedless prune
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine, room temperature

- Drain and chop (and remove pits if they are not seedless).
- Set aside.
- In a bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.
- Sift the flour, salt and baking soda together and combine with the butter and sugar mixture.
