Rolled dumplings are one of the most common foods in Slovenia. The Vrhnika region is known for dumplings ('štruklji') with prune filling, which can be served as a main course or a
dessert. They are so tasty that they will please even the most demanding
gourmet. Come and try for yourself!
Prepare strudel dough from flour, oil, and egg, lukewarm water,
half a liter of milk, and salt. For the filling: cook prunes until soft; when
cooked remove the pits and chop them. Stir in a tablespoon of a previously
prepared mixture of butter and cream. If it is too dense, add a spoonful of
plum jam. Roll the dough out thin, cover
with filling, roll the dough from one edge, and wrap in a clean towel. Cook
rolled in the towel in boiling salted water. When cooked, cut into pieces and
garnish with breadcrumbs fried in butter. Bon appetit ...
