Raisin Plum Pie

Makes: 8 servings
Prep 40 mins Bake 375°F 50 mins
Raisin Plum Pie
  •  Whole Wheat Pastry for Double-Crust Pie
  • 3/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 5 - 6  ripe plums (about 1 lb.), pitted and cut into bite-size pieces (2 cups)
  • 1/2  cup  raisins
  • 1/2  cup  currants
  • 1/2  cup  fresh cranberries
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, cut up
  •  Milk
  •  Granulated sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare pastry. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten 1 portion of the pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin. Unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2-inch beyond edge of pie plate.

2. For filling, in a large bowl combine brown sugar and flour. Add plums, raisins, currants, and cranberries; toss to coat. Transfer to pastry-lined pie plate. Dot filling with butter.

3. Roll out remaining pastry into a 10- to 12-inch circle. Cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Weave strips over filling in a lattice pattern. Press strips into bottom pastry rim. Fold bottom pastry over strip ends; seal and crimp edge.

4. Brush top pastry with milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake pie for 25 to 30 minutes more or until filling is bubbly and pastry is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
