Another RI-er here. My Italian ex-SIL used to make these at Christmas. It's been years since I've seen or heard from her, but I haven't forgotten how good her prune cookies were. I'm happy to have found a recipe for them! Thanks.

Amazing!!! Everyone loved it, even people who aren't crazy about prunes! Though I didn't glaze it with lemon because I had a cream left over from muffins I made I wanted to use that up, so I poured it over the dough right before putting it in the oven... the cream had chocolate chips in it as well. Fabulous!!

I made these cookies for our family gathering this weekend and everybody loved them so much that each individual family took some home for later! I only wish a quantity could have been suggested for the chopped walnuts; I used 1/2 cup and we all enjoyed them, but more might have been nice too. Additionally, the recipe could have mentioned whether the dough needed to rest in the fridge a while before rolling out and filling, or whether you were supposed to proceed immediately to rolling out the cookies after initially mixing it; I decided to proceed immediately to kneading and rolling it out, but maybe I'll try resting the dough after mixing next time, to see if it could imrpove the recipe. The bottom line is that the cookies are not too sweet, but perfect for enjoying with coffee, either after dinner, or first thing in the morning! =o)

Delicious! This is very similar to my grandmother's recipe. The only difference for my family is we add a shot of brandy and 10 oz. chopped marachino cherries to the prune mixture. This must be a strictly Rhode Island cookie. I wonder if our families are from the same town in Italy!

Thanks you so much!!! I've been trying to find this recipe that an elderly Italian friend of mine had...it is not in any cookbooks. Thank you. Similar to the other reviewer, I am from Rhode Island.

I have been looking for a prune slice recipe for years, without any luck....I cannot believe how delicious these are, add chopped maraschino cherries, maybe 10-12 and definitely walnuts...I live in RI and Italian cookie trays always have these in them, but no one ever has the recipe....try them, they are soooo good, and they go in my Christmas trays every year now....thanks so sharing...
