  Dried prunes 2 Pound, rinsed
  Lemon 1⁄2 (Use Rind And Juice)
  Strawberry jam/Raspberry jam 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  All purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Unsalted butter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Egg yolks 3
  Lemon 1⁄2 , peel grated, juiced
  Finely chopped walnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)

1. To make filling, cook prunes until soft in water in a covered saucepan. Cool prunes, remove and discard pits, cut into halves, and force through a food mill. Mix in lemon juice, peel, and jam.
2. To make dough, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until particles are the size of small peas. Add egg, egg yolks, and lemon juice and peel. Mix with a fork until a dough is formed.
3. Divide dough so one portion is enough to cover just the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan. Press dough into pan. On a lightly floured surface, use hands to roll remaining dough into pencil-thin strips.
4. Spoon filling into pan over dough. Sprinkle with walnuts. Make a crisscross effect with dough strips on top of filling.
5. Bake at 350°F until golden brown. Cool. Cut into squares.
