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