For the plum filling:

  • 500 gr plums (deseeded)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (depends on plum, if it is sour add more sugar by tasting it)
  • cinnamon
  • Place the plums into a sauce pan and cook. Do not add water.

    When soften add sugar and cinnamon and continue to cook.

    When thickens set aside to cool.

    For the dough:

  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • baking powder
  • 200 gr. butter
  • 2 T yogurt
  • cinnamon
  • Combine the flours, cinnamon and room temperature butter in a mixing bowl.

    Mix them until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

    Add yogurt, eggs and baking powder. Knead well.

    Shape into a ball.

    Wrap and refrigerate for half an hour for easier rolling. Divide into two balls.

    Roll out one ball pastry and line a greased 23 cm flan tin.

    Pour the plum mixture on it.

    Take the other chilled ball dough.

    Dust rolling pin and work surface lightly with flour. Roll dough to a uniform thickness. Roll to a circle almost like your pie tin. Using the plastic strip cutter, form the upper dough and carefully place it on top of the plum mixture.

    If you don’t have a cutter, simply cut the dough into thin strips and place it on plum mixture.

    With the strips make a cage design. Gently press into form of tin.

    Make a strip for the edge of the tin.

    Bake at 180° C preheat oven for about 35 minutes, until golden brown.
