Perfectly Delicious Plum Pie


4 cups sliced fresh plums
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
recipe for a 9-inch single crust pie

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

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

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

Bake for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Cover edges of crust during the last 20 minutes to prevent over-browning. Cool on a wire rack.

NOTE: the colour of your pie will depend on the type of plum you've used - being in Niagara, we've got a variety of plums available during the summer. You could mix different varieties together and get a whole new taste.

I love plums but I've never baked with them. This pie looks delicious! I love the color of the plums as they peek out of the crust. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
