    One of my favorite Christmas treats, and very popular with the Finnish community with coffee. I know,you're thinking prunes..ewww...but they are very good. (the bake time does not include the overnight dough chill time).

      These are absolutely wonderful! We live in Illinois now but my Finnish family has roots in the UP Michigan and we travel there every summer. We always buy these from Tony's Kitchen in Laurium but now I can make them at home. The verdict from even the most staunch Tony's Kitchen customers in my family is that these are marvelous! I creamed cottage cheese in the blender first before adding to the dough.

      I cannot review yet but I am so delighted to find this! My grandmother passed away 28 years ago and no one had her prune tart recipe. I remember begging her to make extras for me as a child, they were so good! She would make dozens only at Xmas time and store them in the freezer. We all awaited anxiously the day she gifted us the fruits of her labors. They were absolutely delicious!
