Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie


This Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie is a sweet treat recipe for some good down-home cooking. And it tends to make a yearly appearance on my dinner table when the plums are in season. My neighbor has a beautiful plum tree full of delicious plums. He kindly offers me some fresh plums each year. Thank you, Sam! In return, I always make two pans of this easy recipe, one for us and one for the neighbor. And he really enjoys it! Extra juicy, extra jammy, covered with a layer of homemade biscuit topping, this rustic plum pie is beyond words good. 

This recipe is so easy to make from scratch! To start, layer the plum pie filling in a deep round pie pan. Then make a biscuit dough in a food processor and drop it on top of the fruit filling. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes and enjoy. So simple!

To make the Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Rustic Plum Biscuit Pie


Heat oven


Preheat the oven to 375 °F.


Make flour mixture


In a bowl, mix together ½ cup sugar, ½ cup flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.


Assemble fruit filling


Transfer half of the plums to a deep 9 or 10-inch round pie pan. Sprinkle half of the flour mixture over the plums, then add remaining plums and sprinkle with the remaining flour mixture.


Combine dry ingredients


In a food processor, combine 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour, ⅓ cup fine yellow cornmeal, ⅓ cup granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt and pulse a few times.


Add butter


Add 1 ½ sticks butter cut into small pieces and pulse until the mixture resembles small peas.


Add heavy whipping cream


Drizzle in 1 cup cold heavy cream and pulse until just combined.


Drop biscuit dough onto the filling


Using an ice cream scooper, drop the dough onto the fruit filling evenly along the border of the pie pan, leaving a free space in the center.




Place a sheet of foil or baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any juices that bubbles over. Bake the pie in the center of the oven for 40-45 minutes or until the liquid is bubbling and the top is golden.



Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream on top, and enjoy!
