A variation on an Anglo-American classic. Yummy and bready, spicy but not too spicy. Not too sweet. Excellent served warm topped with my Ginger Cranberry Relish—elsewhere on my profile. Happy Thanksgiving!

Recipe Directions

Process everything unitl smooth. Refrigerate for one hour. Scoop and roll into little balls, 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch in diameter. Arrange on a teflex dehydrator sheet. Then cover all the little balls with a big sheet of wax paper or another teflex sheet and press down on the little balls through the sheet to flatten them into cookie-shapes. You could also use a rolling pin or a saucer to help flatten them. Dehydrate for 8 hours, flip onto a mesh sheet, and dehydrate another 8 hours or until desired consistency is achieved.

I've got a batch of these in the D right now - after a few hours I tried a few and am a bit disappointed :( They are pretty bland, even with adding extra spices, and have a weird aftertaste, that I suspect is the prunes. I would try them with less flax, walnuts maybe, and perhaps raisins/dates/prunes mixture, and way more spice. Oh and more orange juice - I really like that addition, just need more because the dough was pretty dry.

these sound fabulous. i happened to have dehydrated a whole flat of plums in the summer... how fortuitous. of course they are much more tart than the regular, so i guess i could add a few dates maybe...
anyway, these sound lovely!

Dates would be much sweeter, Zoe--could you find dried apricots or raisins? (I know most Whole Foods carry some "Hunzan" raw versions of these) They might work better than dates.

This looks great, I can't get raw prunes, any suggestions on a substitution? Would dates do it?
