We woke up to a wonderful beautiful day this morning.. The sun was shining brightly and the snow was glistening...
This Christmas season I didn't do as much baking or even candy making. Last night I did make some tarts, so that we would have a little Canadian and Finn in our Christmas. I made some Butter Tarts and also some Finnish Prune Tarts called Joulutorttu. Some of the tarts I put Apricot Jam in them, along with prunes.
A perfect Christmas Eve Day!

Finnish Prune Tarts
7 oz Prunes
water to cover prunes
1/8 cup sugar
1 pkg Puff Pastry sheet
1 egg white beaten
In small saucepan, place prunes, sugar and enough water to cover prunes. Cook on medium-low until prunes are soft and water dissipated . At this point you can blend the prunes or mash them with a fork. Set aside.
Roll out Puff Pastry and cut each sheet into 9 squares. Cut slits into each corner of each square.
Add a teaspoon of prune filling in the center of the square and fold one end of pastry to center so that it looks like a pinwheel.
Brush top with beaten egg white.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until pastry is slightly brown.
Make glaze with 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp of vanilla and enough milk to make glaze runny. Pour glaze over top of tarts.
You can also use apricot jam instead of prune filling. I usually make some of each.
