My second favorite fall fruit ... pears! I love using fruits (and veggies) that are in season. And you know that I like easy-peasy! This dessert is simple, elegant and satisfying. The alcohol in the wine evaporates off in the cooking process. I think of this as a marriage of sangria...or perhaps mulled wine and pears. YUM!
There is nothing quite like a good fruit pie. I like using seasonal fruit… and plums have a long season… from May 'till October. This pie could be made with other fruit, like peaches… however, plums are my favorite! You can make this with a pre-made crust if you like. I prefer to make my own. It’s so quick with a food processor it’s crazy! There is something satisfying about rolling out a crust…especially on my trusty Tupperware mat.
