"I'm pie crust challenged, so I'm happy to take advantage of a store bought pastry. It's not overly sweet, which showcases the taste of the plums and I served it with some vanilla ice cream. Freshly whipped cream would be another great choice. Don't like plums? Give it a try with apples, pears or peaches, they'd all work well with the ginger."
