Buttery Plum Pie Bites Recipe

These are plum cookies with a buttery shell and jammy plum filling. Cut them into bite-sized pieces.  


– 3 3/4 cups all purpose flour – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar – 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt – 3 sticks unsalted butter cut in small cubes and chilled – 2 large eggs whisked – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 pounds Italian plums pitted and halved – 1/4 cup granulated sugar – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon – 8 tablespoons apricot jam

Step 1

Mix flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Add butter and pulse till coarse crumbs. Add eggs and vanilla. Pulsing several times makes the dough more firm.  


Step 2

Transfer to big bowl. The dough should be pliable but not sticky. If so, keep adding flour until smooth. Make a smooth ball of dough and flatten it into a disk. Plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.  

Step 3

Heat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and parchment a 12-inch (30-cm) square baking pan.  

Step 4

Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over plums in a big bowl. Coat plums and set aside. Slice and place 2/3 of the dough in the pan. Stretch it out and press it evenly into the pan bottom with your fingertips.  

Step 5

Sliced plums can be spread anywhere. Add another spoonful of sugar. Finish by flouring your work surface and rolling out the last 1/3 of dough. Cut it into strips and gently cover the pie to form a net.  

Step 6

Bake until dough is golden brown and plums tender, 45-50 minutes. Take out of oven.  

Step 7

Add a spoonful of boiling water to apricot jam. After brushing the jam on the warm plum pie, let it cool before carving. If desired, dust with powdered sugar before serving.
