The Prune Plums are In!

When I finally found Italian prune plums (they are small) at Roche Brothers yesterday, I just had to buy some.  The photograph tells you why.  The recipe is something my husband ate as a child in Germany.  Konditoreis still serve pflaumen tarte.  So good.  Baked with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar and dappled with sliced almonds.  The crust is actually golden, which doesn't show in the photo.  My mother-in-law always made this (my father-in-law's fave) with a yeast dough, but my recipe calls for a dough very similair to a pie crust, but without water, just one egg. 

Our dinner was a Mexican soup from the Yucutan.  Hey!  It must have been International Night.
