As I’ve already probably said, the sweet pies are part of my favorite desserts, and I think the tart with the plums must be MY pie of choice. This is surely due to the fact that my grandmother had in her garden of beautiful plum trees and that I often went on holiday in it at this time of the year. As she knew that we loved this dessert, she made us a pie with plums almost every 2 days and we are delighted. In fact, I should even say that it was my aunt who made them, and the plums were much better arranged than in the mine… �� Ahhhh the memories of childhood…

Anyway, going to the market last Sunday, I came across a display of plums that made me seriously in the eye. So I naturally took 1 kilo to make a… pie with plums, simple and all easy to do.

  • 900 g plums (here a mixture of reines claudes and plums)
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 250 g of flour
  • 7 cl of oil
  • 7 cl of water
  • 1 pinch of salt



  • Preheat your oven to 180°.
  • In a bowl, pour the flour, oil, water and a pinch of salt.
  • Stir until obtaining a homogeneous ball of dough. Attention to mix as less time as possible so that the dough is not too hard and keeps his crisp. If the dough is too sticky add a little flour if it is too dry add a little oil and/or water.
  • Lay it out and place it in the pie pan. Make small holes in the bottom of pie with a fork.
  • Remove, on the bottom of pie, the plums pitted, curved face to the top.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Right out of the oven, sprinkle the vanilla sugar on the plums. In doing so, some parts of the sugar will have time to caramelize and others will remain crispy. It is a treat !
