Lattice Plum Pie

This is a delish Hungarian plum pie recipe that I learned from my husband's grandmother. Whenever I make it, the Hungarians in the house would say ooooh, aaaah, just like in Hungary ;-)


  • 300 g AP flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 120 g icing sugar
  • 150 g butter no substitute
  • 1 yolk
  • 1 egg


  • 1/4 kg plums seeded, quartered
  • 50 g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 50 g ground walnut


  • Mix plum, icing sugar, ground walnut, cinnamon powder, set aside


  • Mix in dry ingredients with butter, yolk and an egg, knead to a round dough. Let rest in a cool room temperature for 20 minutes.
  • Divide dough into a big portion and a smaller portion. Roll flat the bigger dough, enough to cover a pie pan. Pour in filling, and make lattice and decoration (as shown on picture or as you wish) with the smaller portion of dough.
  • Take an extra egg, beaten, and brush lattice
  • Bake at preheated 350 F for 30 minutes
