Originally, I had no intention of sharing this recipe. I had tried several times to make a plum pie, and they always tasted tart, didn’t set properly, burned, or something went wrong. Plums aren’t always that easy to bake with. I had no confidence in this recipe after my prior failures, so when Hubby asked if I wanted photos before he cut into the pie, I declined.
Hubby went away with his pie chewing like he hadn’t eaten in a week. He finished his slice in record time, so I decided to try a piece myself.
Hubby laughed at me when he heard me snapping pictures. When I told him I changed my mind, he laughed harder. He then complimented the pie. Hubby can be a tad critical of my (ok anyone’s) baking, so a compliment from him really is worth quite a bit.
Hubby liked this pie, and so did I! I hope you will enjoy this easy plum pie recipe too.
Note: for the crust, I used my Easy Pie Crust Dough Recipe because it is, well, easy!
