Foodie Friday ~ Homemade Italian Plum Pie

Foodie Friday is presented by Gollum at

Visit her site for more fabulous recipes:)

I found this recipe a long time ago in the food section of the newspaper and have loved it ever since. Last fall I had bought Italian Plums. I pitted and froze them for a special pie. Last weekend as you know was my birthday, so that was a good time to make that special pie. Making it was easy. I used a Pillsbury rolled refrigerated pie crust and then grabbed my plums from the freezer. Mixed the plums with the added ingrediants, put in the pie crust and into the oven.

4 cups pitted Italian plums
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
dash of salt
In a bowl mix together above ingredients. Line 9-inch pie plate with pie crust. Pour ingredients into crust. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon lemon juice; dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Adjust top crust, cutting slits for escape of steam. Seal. Sprinkle top crust with Wilton White Sparkling Sugar. Bake in a 400 degrees oven for 50 minutes.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 50 minutes.

Cool on top of the oven.

Absolutely mouth-watering! This sort of reminds me of a rhubarb pie. Is there any tartness to it?
