  • Yield: 1 9-inch pie 1x



For the hazelnut crust:

  • 2 cups hazelnut flour/meal
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) chilled unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream

For the pie:

  • 7 cups pitted and sliced plums (about 10 plums)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chopped crystallized ginger


  1. To make the crust: Add ingredients to a food processor. Pulse just until a dough forms. Shape dough into a disk about 5 inches in diameter. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill in fridge at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss sliced plums with sugar and cornstarch.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Press dough into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Arrange plums in pie plate (or if you’re into a more rustic look, just pour the plums into the pie plate). Sprinkle with crystallized ginger.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes until crust is a deep brown and plums are soft and juicy. Cool at least 15 minutes before slicing.
