Spiced Plum Pie

The subtle tastes of orange and nutmeg bring out the fresh flavor of plums in this comforting pie. Be sure to have a slice while it's still warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. —Lucille Mead, Ilion, New York

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 4-1/2 cups sliced fresh plums
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Line a 9-in. pie plate or cast iron skillet with bottom pastry; trim even with edge. Arrange plums in crust. In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Stir in egg, orange juice and zest. Pour over plums; dot with butter.
  • Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  • Bake 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly (cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary). Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.

    I didn't have any orange zest, but this pie was delicious without it.
