Plum Pie  Recipe

I really like this version of a pie. Dough in this pie reminds me of cookie dough, works wonderful with the plums.
One of my friends share the recipe and I have been making it few years in a row. I like to use prune plums in this recipe, they are one of our favorites. It was the most common plum we had back in Ukraine.
Pie can be a bit messy when you cut it hot, juice from inside kind of floats all over. If you give it about an hour to let the juice on the inside thicken up., usually I don’t have patience so I don’t mind eating messy pie.
