      Title: Christmas stars (joulutortut)
 Categories: Cookie
      Yield: 36 Servings
    300 g  Butter
    450 ml Wheat flour
    200 ml Water

    300 g  Dried prunes
    100 ml Water
           Sugar to taste
  This is from my Christmas recipe collection. These are still a tradition in most Finnish families.
  Dough: Mix soft butter with flour and water.  Place in cold until
  hard. (You can store it in a cold place overnight.) Roll out very
  thin, fold sides in the middle, overlapping. Roll and fold at least
  three times. For better results let cool after every folding.
  Filling: Boil prunes in water until they fall apart.  Add sugar. Mix
  well and let cool.
  Roll out the dough to half centimeter thickness. Cut it to squares.
  Place a teaspoonfull of filling on the center of each square. Cut a
  little from each corner towards the center. Fold left-side halfs of
  each corner to the middle, on top of filling. Pinch tightly. Brush
  with egg. Bake in 225 C oven for 8 - 10 minutes. Sprinkle lightly
  with powdered sugar.
