2 tablespoons of icing sugar

⅔ cup white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 cup flour
10 ounces of puff pastry
¼ cup lemon juice

How to Cook Prune Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  2. Put the prunes in a bowl and sprinkle about one tablespoon of icing sugar on them. Set them aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Add the butter into the kitchen aid bowl and start processing it.
  4. Add the sugar gradually and continue to process, until you incorporate it all.
  5. Add the eggs gradually, while you continue mixing.
  6. Add the almond extract, lemon and lime zest.
  7. Stop the kitchen aid and sift the flour in the bowl. Process again until you get a thick and creamy batter. Set the batter aside.
  8. Flour your workspace and spread the puff pastry using a rolling pin, until you make a thin sheet. Remove its edges to form one square or rectangular puff pastry sheet.
  9. Lay a baking tray with parchment paper and add the puff pastry sheet.
  10. Bake the crust for 15 minutes.
  11. Take the tray out of the oven and spread the batter in an even layer over the puff pastry sheet.
  12. Top with prunes and almond flakes. Embed the prunes into the batter just a little, using your fingers.
  13. Return it to the oven and bake it for 30 minutes at 320 degrees F/160 degrees C.
  14. Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar with lemon juice to get a glaze.
  15. Take the tray out of the oven, cut small cookies, let them cool a little and then glaze them again before serving.
