Yesterday was a special day.  Solo’s Sweetest 16 Recipe Contest launched and I was asked to be a part of the festivities! I am one of 16 bloggers participating in a bracket-like contest, charged with the challenge  to create a unique recipe using cake and pastry filling and almond paste supplied by Solo Foods.  The complete list of bloggers is noted below.

This challenge is particularly close to my heart because I grew up with my mom using Solo in her Danish cookies.  I distinctly remember mom’s process of layering of ingredients and spreading of the apricot and raspberry fillings. Tempted, I almost made my mom’s cookies for the contest, but I chose to travel in a slightly different, gluten-free direction.

Using the pastry filling many may shy away from including, I am proud of my tart.  Nonetheless, hindsight is 20/20. We all know prunes lead to trepidation for some, as it is often forgetten that Prune = Plum. Therefore, I am asking that you take a chance and vote for my recipe in the first round of voting. It is an easy one- click vote. There isn’t a need to sign up, sign in, or donate a kidney. Simply Click Here to check out all the other lovely recipes, then vote with your heart….for prune.
