- 1 Pre-made Pie Crust
- 4 cups Plums
- 1/2 cup Sugar

This is the best pie there is; tart, tangy, and with an old European pastry feel!
Split plums in half and remove seeds. If you have lots, do this, throw them in a freezer bag and freeze. Then you can have this great pie all year round.
Dice ½ of the marzipan, put the rest in a baggie and freeze for your next pie.
Mix all ingredients in bowl. Put pie crust in 9” pan. Pour filling in. Top with other crust. Bake at 425 for 35-45 minutes, until filling is bubbling out.
Be sure you put an aluminum foil covered tray below this pie, it will drip bubbly wonderfulness all over your oven.
