PRUNE FILLING

Ingredients

1 Large package dried prunes (the pitted ones cost more but are easier to use and less time is consumed than when one has to remove the pits)
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 Cup Sugar


Cover the prunes with water in a medium-sized pot and simmer until tender. Drain the liquid (In the old country the juice is sometimes mixed into hot tea). Mash the prunes until smooth, if using the pitted ones. If using whole prunes then remove the pits with your fingers and then mash. Then add the cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. This recipe makes enough filling for about 3 dozen kolaches. I reduce it and make other fillings at the same time for a variety. This recipe works well with dried apples, peaches, and apricots. Women usually either prefer almond or vanilla extract in their fillings. You will have to decide for yourself which you prefer.
