  • ¼ apple with peel
  • juice and rind of ¼ lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  1. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and beat until smooth.
  2. Add the vanilla. Stir in the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt until a ball of dough is formed. Chill 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
  3. For fruit filling, simmer prunes and raisins in water, covered, for 15 minutes, or until prunes soften slightly. Add nuts and apple. Grind or chop in a food processor. Add lemon juice and rind and sugar. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
