Prune Tweedies

by Tenina Holder

Another conversion from my mother’s recipe collection. We used to love these even as kids, despite the ginger. They need to be kept in the fridge for best texture and thermomix seems to make them just that little bit nicer! 


  • 85 g butter
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 180 g prunes, pitted
  • 50-60 g crystallised ginger
  • 20 g shredded coconut, plus some more
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice, fresh



Place butter and sugar into Thermo bowl and blend 6 sec/speed 6.


Add remaining ingredients and blend until well combined, 10 sec/speed 6 or until you are happy with texture. Refrigerate mixture until quite solid.


Use wet hands to make small balls and roll in the extra coconut. Keep refrigerated until use.
