Easy Plum Tarte

My Gramma has a plum tree in her backyard. Ever since I was little I loved picking them. Isn’t there something special about food that you pick yourself? A few summers ago I took my husband to my Gramma’s for a visit. He also loved being able to pick the plums right off the tree. Since she remembered how much he loved them that summer, this year she mailed us a box full of delicious plums right from her tree. A box full of plums was such a treat! We enjoyed them so much. And since there we an abundance, I decided to make an easy plum tarte with some of them.

When I say easy plum tarte, I mean easy! I used a store bought pie crust for this one, folks. The only “work” this really required was cutting a pitting the plums. Since my plums were on the smaller side, I just cut them in half. If you use larger plums be sure to slice them into wedges.
