DIRECTIONS

  • Combine water or orange juice, lemon juice, prunes, raisins, sugar and cinnamon in a small saucepan over a low heat.
  • Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, tossing and stirring the fruit to soften the prunes and plump the raisins.
  • Make sure the bottom does not stick and the mixture doesn't boil.
  • Remove pot from heat and allow contents to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon and walnuts, if using, and process in food processor until it forms a thick puree.
  • Add a bit more orange juice or water to thin the puree if necessary.
  • Taste and add 1 tablespoons of sugar at a time until filling is desired sweetness.
  • Filling should be thick and moist.
  • Chill filling slightly before using.
  • Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
  • If chilled filling is too stiff to spread, loosen with a bit of warm juice or water.
