Spiced Plum Cream Pie
Sometimes, a simple pie is all that’s needed to round out Easter lunch or a spring supper… or just to enjoy all by itself. Not a plum fan? You can sub other fruits like summer peaches with the same tasty outcome!
- ½ teaspoon apple pie spice
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 pie crust (9-inch), unbaked
- 3 tablespoons cold butter
- 4 cups plums, pitted and thinly sliced (about 6 plums)
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine spices with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
Dust bottom of crust with 1 teaspoon of sugar-spice mix, pressing into soft dough.
Grate cold butter over spiced crust. Cover with plums.
Add remaining spice mix to ⅔ cup sugar, flour and cream. Whisk to blend well.
Pour over plums and bake on center rack about 35–40 minutes, until center is set. Cool before serving.
