Fruit pies are wildly popular, particularly around the holidays. And this fresh plum pie recipe calls for just enough cinnamon to make it festive. Using two crusts, this pie recipe is simple enough for even the novice baker, while it promises an impressive result.


  • 2 (9-inch) pie crusts, store-bought or homemade pastry for double crust

  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional

  • 3 cups pitted and sliced fresh plums

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

  5. Roll remaining pastry; fold over and carefully cover the fruit mixture. Trim edges, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang then flute. Cut several 1 1/2-inch slits in a pinwheel design in top of pie to let steam escape.

  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until filling is bubbly and crust is browned. If edge browns too quickly, shield with a strip of foil.
