Spiced Plum Pie

27 Jul

A pie couldn’t be made much simpler, or more delicious (in my opinion). Throw this together for your next gathering! I love it with plums, but apples, pears, or other seasonal ingredients (that can take to being lightly spiced) would also be lovely in this recipe. If you want to make it vegan, just use a vegan crust!     — Alex

ingredients:

  • pie crust (I recommended to use the “Ultimate Crust” recipe on this blog, or a vegan crust if you want it vegan, but any other crust will be fine)

filling:

  • about 10 medium/large plums
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar, honey, or real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cloves

process:

  1. make the pie crust as directed on the “Ultimate Crust” recipe, set aside
  2. heat the oven to 300 F
  3. cut the plums into thin slices (about 1/4″ thick at the rind or less)
  4. put the sliced plums in a bowl, add the other ingredients, and toss together until all the plums are evenly coated with the spices.
  5. spoon the plum mixture into the pie crust, press down firmly as you fill it so it becomes as tightly packed as possible.
  6. place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until it looks well set (it won’t really brown much unless it’s burning, since it’s fruit).
  7. Enjoy!
