DIRECTIONS

  • For filling, in a large mixing bowl stir together sugar, the 3 tablespoons flour, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Add the plum and nectarine slices; gently toss plums and nectarines until coated.
  • Set filling aside.
  • For pastry, in a large mixing bowl stir together the 2 cups flour and salt.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening or lard until pieces are the size of small peas.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the water over part of the flour mixture, then gently toss with a fork.
  • Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl.
  • Repeat, using 1 tablespoon of water at a time, until all is moistened.
  • Divide dough in half.
  • Form each half into a ball.
  • On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten one ball of dough.
  • Roll dough from center to edges, forming a 12-inch circle.
  • Wrap the pastry around the rolling pin.
  • Unroll onto a 9-inch pie plate.
  • Ease pastry into the pie plate, being careful not to stretch it.
  • For top crust, repeat rolling with remaining dough.
  • Transfer the filling to the pastry-lined pie plate.
  • Trim the bottom pastry even with rim of pie plate.
  • Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
  • Place top crust on filling.
  • Trim top crust 1/2-inch beyond edge of plate.
  • Fold top crust under bottom crust; flute edge.
  • Brush with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
  • To prevent overbrowning, cover the edge of pie with foil.
  • Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until top is golden.
  • Cool pie on a wire rack.
