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


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Combine spices with 1 tablespoon of sugar.

  3. Dust bottom of crust with 1 teaspoon of sugar-spice mix, pressing into soft dough.

  4. Grate cold butter over spiced crust. Cover with plums.

  5. Add remaining spice mix to ⅔ cup sugar, flour and cream. Whisk to blend well.

  6. Pour over plums and bake on center rack about 35–40 minutes, until center is set. Cool before serving.

Note: If crust edge gets browned before pie is set, cover pie with foil to finish baking.
