Flaky plum turnovers filled with fresh summer plums.
I can’t believe it is August! I just posted a lunchbox recipe the other day which is crazy. I know many parts of the U.S. start up school soon, but here in Massachusetts it starts right around Labor Day. So I can pretend we still have most of the summer left, and not think about school. Instead I’ll just focus on all that lovely summer fruit and baking.
Instead of a full blown pie, I decided to make plum turnovers. I love that they are already in individual servings. And it’s a great recipe if the kids want to help, because they can each make their own. Of course you can’t do that with full pies… well maybe you can if you really like pie 🙂
I recommend serving these warm with a bit of vanilla ice cream. Unfortunately we were out of ice cream when I was making these (it tends to disappear around here). However we came up with a solution. We topped the plum turnovers with a bit of sweetened Greek yogurt. It was just as cool and creamy as ice cream, and it was a perfect contrast to the warm pie.
For the plum turnovers, choose plums that are ripe but still firm. Taste a slice, and the sugar in the recipe can be adjusted if needed. The filling is so simple with only 3 ingredients! The plums, of course, and some sugar and a bit of cornstarch to thicken the juices. Beautiful fresh fruit doesn’t need much to make it shine. Enjoy!
