Or even plum pie/tart. Dried prunes aren't just any old dried plums;  
they're a specific type of plum, so there are dried plums out there  
for which the term "prune" doesn't apply. I made this tart with dried  
sour yellow plums and it was pretty smashing, although I cheated and  
used open pre-made tart shells, and served them, IIRC, with a big  
dollop of whipped creme fraiche on top. Apart from the shock to  
people expecting sweetened Chantilly cream and getting something like  
sour cream (believe me, they adapted), they went over very well.
