Spiced Plum Cream Pie
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.
  1. Pit and slice the plums. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 Degrees F.
  3. Combine the spices with 1 T. Sugar.
  4. Dust the bottom of the pie crust with 1 tsp. of the Sugar/Spice Mix.
  5. Dot the bottom of the crust with the cold butter- or grate it over it.
  6. Arrange the plums in the crust. You can also go “rustic” and just dump them in.
  7. Add remaining Spice Mix to Sugar, Flour and Cream. Whisk to blend well.
  8. Pour the Cream Mix over the Plums.
  9. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until center is set. Cool before serving.
