Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie

Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie. You'll love the crumbly topping and bubbly filling. Easy, delicious and so homey! @natashaskitchen

This deep dish plum biscuit pie is easy to assemble, but looks and tastes like something time intensive. The homey biscuit topping is crumbly and hugs the delicious plums below. I love seeing the bubbling ruby juicies come through the center and edges of the pie.

Plums just taste so so good when baked. Make sure you add the cinnamon; it really brings out the plums sweet-tart goodness. Your home will smell delicious and your taste buds will thank you.

How to Make the Biscuit Topping:

(note: if you don’t have a Food Processor, you can use a bowl and whisk for step 1, a Pastry Cutter for step 2, and a mixing spoon for step 3 below)

1. Place the first 5 topping ingredients in the bowl of a food processor: 1 3/4 cups flour, 1/3 cup cornmeal, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Pulse to combine.

2. Add sliced butter and pulse until pea-sized crumbles form.

3. Drizzle with heavy cream and pulse until just combined. Place large spoonfuls of dough (I used an ice cream scooper) evenly over the border of the pie, leaving a space in the center (this space helps to vent the pie and gives the pie more of a rustic look).

4. Bake in the center of the oven at 375˚F for 40-45 minutes or until top is golden and liquid is bubbling. Place a sheet of foil or baking sheet on the rack below your pie for the last 20 minutes to catch any juices that bubble over. Dust the top with powdered sugar if desired.

      Hi Molly, I haven’t tried that so I can’t say for sure. Have you seen something similar done with bisquick? I just don’t have much experience with it. Reply

    Love this pie! So good. Do you think I can pre-bake it and freeze it? If so what’s, what’s the best way to do it? Thanks Reply

      To be honest, I’m not sure if that would work because I haven’t tried it, but I’m a little concerned that the topping might get mushy if frozen and then thawed. If you do test it, let me know how it works out. Sorry I’m not much help with your question. Reply

    Delicious recipe:) I substituted the plums for frozen mixed berries. I didn’t have cornmeal on hand so I substituted that with cream of wheat and it turned out very yummy:) I tell my husband you must have the same taste buds as me because all your recipes are so delicious I love the ones I’ve tried so far! Reply
