plums from my own courtyard, they taste so good and sweet, and look at those colors,  i am proud! posted by nathalie, image: robert borghuis, recipe leonoor ottink.
make jam and the easiest plum pie in one time:
to make the jam, keep 10-15 plums, depending on their size, apart for the pie, halve the rest of the plums and remove the stones.
weigh the fruit, add the same amount of sugar (yes, the same amount, the sugar makes the jam last) and bring to a boil.
let it simmer while stirring every now and then until it thickens, test by letting a drop cool on a plate.
ladle the jam in sterilized jars.
for the pie:
place 200 g flour and 200 g butter and 120 g sugar in a bow, cut the butter with 2 knives into small cubes,  add 1 free range egg and quickly knead to a ball.
grease a spring form with butter and place the dough in the form, make sure there is a bit of overhang on the edge.
bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven on 180ºc until light brown, remove from the oven and put aside.
halve the remaining plums and remove the stones.
spoon enough plum jam on the pie to cover the crust with a thin layer of jam.
place the plums in circular shape on the pie, skin side up, until completely covered with plums.
bake for another 10 minutes in the oven.
let it cool and serve with freshly whipped cream.
