Plum Pie...

A friend of mine shared this recipe for make-ahead apple pie filling that I planed on using plums instead of apple... I decided to bake a plum pie to be served with almond cream. Anyway, I had never made a plum pie, nor even seen a recipe for one. Plum pie was the one I wanted to try first; The pie was delicious, even though the plums that I bought weren’t perfect. . I did change a few things, though as is my way, it appears. . I wanted to really focus on the flavor of the fruit.... . I try not to go overboard with spices or sugar either.


INGREDIENTS:

8-10 plums

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Pinch of salt

3- tbsp cold butter or margarine

1 1/2- cup milk


Method:

1.In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients; pour into the pastry shell.

2.For topping, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon in a small bowl; cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.

3.Add an milk at a time and blend. Add the flour.

4.Divide the plums into halves and remove the plum stones.

5.Try to keep the size of the slices even.

6.Mix sugar, flour, , cinnamon powder, in a large bowl.Stir in plums.

7.Pour the filling into the crust and add the plum halves.

8.Bake for about 30 minutes or until the filling becomes golden.
