Great-Grandma used prunes and prune fillings in many goodies of her own creation. Prune torte is one of them. The filling is even more delicious when made with an equal quantity of dates and prunes.

Roll each piece between 2 sheets of waxed paper or parchment paper to fit the pans, or pat each piece of dough into the prepared pans.

MMMMMMM! My cousin's paternal grandmother was Ukrainian and used to make a similar recipe and as children we would devour it minutes (though we didn't know it was prunes until we were older) . I could never find a recipe just like she made - until this one came along. The hardest part is the waiting for it to stand - don't rush it as that process is what makes it so good. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
