Mascapone Cheese and Plum Pie

I cannot remember who gave me this recipe and although I don't make it often, I always wonder afterwards why I don't. It is really a beautiful pie and one which leaves you wanting to have another helping, but know you really shouldn't.


240 grams plain flour
110 grams cold butter
110 grams icing sugar
1 egg
Rub butter into flour. Add icing sugar then the egg. Combine and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Roll to fit a square shallow pan and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.
10 small plums
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup mascopone cheese
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
vanilla essence
Beat eggs and sugar then add cheese and beat well. Place plums that have been quartered, cut side down onto pastry. In a pan warm cream, milk and vanilla to just below boiling point. Gradually stir in egg mixture to milk and pour over plums. Bake in moderate over 175 - 180 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes. Serve hot with whipped cream or vanilla icecream.
