- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Combine vanilla and milk and stir into mix just to form a nice soft dough. Pat dough into a parchment lined 9 inch pie plate. Refrigerate 1 hour.
- 1 cup Black Cap berries - substitute with blackberries or raspberries as needed
- 8 small Sugar plums, halved and pitted
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour
- Pinch salt
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Heat oven to 400. Combine berries and plums in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, flour and salt and toss gently - just enough to coat fruit. Add lemon juice and toss again. Spoon fruit over prepared pastry. Dot top of pie with butter. Set pie plate on baking sheet to protect oven from run away juices. Bake until pastry is set and fruit is hot and bubbly, about 50 minutes. Let stand to cool slightly before serving.
