    Plum Turnovers are a regular feature in my kitchen at the end of the summer. A few years ago, I bought my father two plum trees as a birthday present. They’ve grown and each year now he harvests so many plums he doesn’t know what to do with them! He always gives me a giant bag of them and I know exactly what to do! Plum Turnovers!

    I start by making the pastry crust for the little plum pies. I mix butter cubes with flour, sugar, salt until I have a fine crumb. I always use my fingers to make pastry but some people prefer to us a pastry blender, food mixer or two forks. The filling is super simple – only 3 ingredients!

    To make Plum Turnovers, you will need the following ingredients:
