I generally don’t buy plums. I’m addicted to prunes but plums can be a real hit or miss. I saw this recipe over on Celine’s blog for Almond Plum Mini Crostata Pies and even considered another fruit. Then I thought, that’s silly, plums are delicious and I should try to bake with them. Funny enough I didn’t even have a plum tag on the blog until this post.
It was a good move, these crostatas turned out really good! Instead of making the filling into a crumble I made it a bit more liquidy to spread. Turned out great honestly. The pastry was flakey, the filling very almondy and the plums were great with the sprinkle of sugar.
