DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in cold butter and and work with the fingers for the pie crust until the butter is the size of peas.
  • Stir in sugar and the beaten egg.
  • Stir with a fork until mixture gathers together. Chill 15 minutes in the freezer.
  • Using a piece of wax paper to prevent the dough from sticking to the hands, press onto the bottom and sides of a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
  • Wash, dry, halve lengthwise, and stone the plums. Stand them on edge in rows very close together on the pastry.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool, then cover with sifted powdered sugar.
