I know there are lots of pie recipes on AllRecipes.com. I only found one for classic plum pie, and lots for cherry pie, but each had features I didn't care for, so I combined what I thought were the best parts, and this is the result. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or whatever, depending on the amount of fruit you have.

  • Place plums into a bowl and stir in sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract with a rubber spatula. Spoon into a prepared pie shell.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and crust is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

I have not specified the crust; I'll leave that up to you. I used to make all my own crusts by hand, 2 knives to cut shortening into flour. Nowadays, I mostly use store-bought crust. Almost as good with almost no effort.

You can leave the top open, or do a top crust, or lattice crust as you like.
