Closed Prune Tyrol Pie

The story goes that the Austro-Hungarian Emperor France-Josef got lost during a hunt in the Tyrol Mountains, and found small country house where the housewife fed him with her traditional family-recipe pie.

It was so delicious that the Emperor ordered this kind of pie be named as “Tyrol”, and ordered his chefs to cook it on occasion. One of these chefs was the former housewife from the Tyrol Mountains.
Since that time, these recipes become wide-spread and well-known.
