Prune Dessert with Walnuts

(Cevizli Kuru Erik Tatlisi)

Prune Dessert with Walnuts
225 gr prunes, pitted
1 1/2 tbsp butter
2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup walnuts, crumbled

Gently wash and drain the prunes. Add all the ingredients into a medium sized cooking pot. Cook until they are softened for about 20-25 minutes over a little bit under medium heat. Don't overcook them. The remaining water should be about the same level as the prunes in the pot.

Place onto a service plate. Sprinkle walnuts all over. Serve while still hot with a spoon. This very old family dessert that my grandmother used to cook for us will warm you up during cold winter days too it did me:)

Makes 4 servings.

Meal Ideas:
- Vegetable Soup, Lamb with Grape Leaves and Turkish Rustic Bread.
