    2       c            1/2 & 1/2*
      1/2   c            Cream cheese*
    4       c            Apples diced 1/4
      1/3   c            Prunes pureed

   Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
   Pour the syrup, the purees, and the water over the dry mixture.
   Add the cream cheese in chunks. Mix by hand using your hands by
   working your hands under the dry ingredients from the sides. Use a
   folding motion and mix until all ingredients are throughly blended
   together. Add the diced apples and the raisins. Mix them into the
   dough by the same folding method. Add the cream or 1/2 & 1/2 and fold
   until completely blended.
   Make 24 round balls of the dough. Place on a well greased baking
   sheet, slightly squash the top of each loaf and bake for 50-55
   minutes in pre-heated 300 degree F oven.
