Plum pie


Every evening we have a tradition to sit in a sitting room and drink a glass of Turkish tea. This time with a plum pie.

We need for a pie crust:

200 gr of unsalted butter

2 cups of flour

a pinch of salt and sugar

2 -3 spoons of milk

vanilla sugar

1 tea spoon of baking powder

Mix the butter and the flour with hand until these ingredients combine, then add salt and sugar, baking powder and water. Make the crust, put into the plastic wrap and put it into the fridge for 1 hour.

Cut 6-8 plums into slices, add 5 spoons of sugar, 1 tea spoon of cinammon and a clove. When some juice appear add a table spoon of corn starch. Mix.

Roll out the pie crust, put it into a heat proof tray, add the plums, put three small pieces of butter on the top. Sprinkle the remaining crust over the top. 

Bake it for about an hour in 180C oven. Let it cool and serve!!!
