Ingredients Needed For Joulutortut (Christmas Tarts)
*ready-to-use pastry dow*
*1 lb prunes
*1/2 c Sugar
*1 egg, beaten (for basting)

Directions To Prepare Joulutortut (Christmas Tarts)
* *This is a shortcut, but it is possible, and done in Finland, to prepare the pastry crust from scratch. It needs to be extra flaky.

Soak the prunes in water with Sugar for a few hours, and then cook them till soft. Remove the pits and chop the prunes into jam-like consistency.

Roll out the crust to about 1/4" thickness and cut into desired shapes: they can be round to which a spoonful of prunes is placed, the edge turned over to form a semiround, and the edges are pinched closed tight; or square where the corners are cut in half towards the center and a small amount of the filling in placed in the center. To form pinwheels, turn every other peak to the center. The square shape can also be formed so that all peaks are turned to the center. Before baking, are basted with the beaten egg. Bake in a hot oven (425°F) for about 10 mins.
