Plum Pie Recipe

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi friends! HAPPY ELECTION DAY! Have you voted yet? I took care of that business before I left so I hope you are all out there making your vote count! Now, as you know, I’m in Scotland (please check out my instagram photos to catch up!) but I wanted to share one of my new favorite dessert recipes ever. It has nothing really to do with the election but it’s a pie recipe(a plum pie recipe to be exact) so therefore, it’s AMURICAN. And it’s election day, so eat Amurican!

So you’ve had apple, you’ve had cranberry, you’ve had walnut and pecan, but plum? I bet that’s a new one for you and trust me, it’s a new one you are going to fall IN LOVE WITH. The plums add just the right hint of tartness but are still perfectly sweet for your sweet tooth. Not only that, it’s a really pretty pie, wouldn’t you say? Perfect to have on your Thanksgiving table!

I seriously LOVE pie. I’ve always loved it. It’s one of my favorite desserts (I’ll always chose pie over cake if asked) and also love how fresh it can be. Unlike many cakes and cookies, you have to use a lot of dry, processed ingredients. Whereas pie, you can use fresh from the ground fruit and vegetables. Which, as a girl a wee bit obsessed with health, is kind of something I dig. Plus, there’s something so comforting, so warming and nostalgic about pie. I can’t imagine ever feeling down if there’s pie involved.

So, if you’re feeling tired, sad or blah today, make this pie. And have a sip of warm cozy cider to go along with it. And just to make you feel even better, I’ve recited this entire post in my head in the best Scottish accent you’ve ever heard! Okay, maybe not the best, but according to my new British friend, I’m getting a lot better. (Either that or she’s hoping I’ll stop talking so she just says I’m good at it).

    Pie is seriously my favorite dessert. I've never had plum pie before, but I can't imagine why it wouldn't be incredible!
