Mamie's Wild Plum Tart

Mamie's Wild Plum Tart

This is the plum tart my French "mamie" would make for a weekday dessert.
  • Serves: 1 person



  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch tart pan with butter.
  2. Step 2

    Roll out the pie dough and press crust into the prepared pan.
  3. Step 3

    Arrange plums snugly, cut-sides down, on the crust. Sprinkle with cinnamon, then sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar, or up to 1/2 cup depending on the sweetness of the plums.
  4. Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the plums are slightly browned and the juices are bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Remove from the oven and let rest until the juices have set, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar, cut, and serve.
