Sweet Prune Pie will be your favourite dessert recipe if you love prunes!
If you want to make a quick dessert using prunes this week for dinner, I would recommend that you buy pitted prunes to save time and hassle.
Always remember that the preparation of pie crust is important in pie baking recipes. If your pie is heavy or soft, your pie dessert would not be as tasty as you want it to be.
You will have a desire to savour this crispy buttery pie crust with fillings that makes the whole eating experience an entirely enjoyable moment!
Ingredients For Crust:
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour; sifted
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2/3 cup Ice Water
- 180 g Cold Butter
Ingredients for Filling:
- 500 g Pitted Prunes
- 2 cups Cold Water
- 1/4 cup Rum
- 1 tbsp Fine Sugar
To prepare crust, mix sifted flour with salt. Blend cold butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter. Add chilled water gradually until mixture becomes doughy enough to roll out. Lightly dust worktop and rolling pin with flour. Roll dough out thinly and line pie dish with pie dough. Bake at 180°C for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
To prepare filling, soak prunes in cold water until soft. Drain them well. Drizzle evenly with rum and sugar and mix thoroughly. Leave to stand for 2 hours. Alternatively, you can cook this mixture over very low heat until sugar has completely dissolved.
Fill crust with prune filling and cover with top crust. Bake at 200°C until pie turns golden brown.
