I was looking for a recipe to use the fresh plums off my tree, and this worked out great. I was down to just 4 small plums (about 1/4 cup) so I topped it off with frozen blueberries and make a 1/4 batch. I've never made a cooked fruit pie filling before, and it turned out really good. I'll make that again. I'm going with 4 stars instead of 5 because I didn't love the dough on top. It was really easy to make, but it wasn't sweet. And while you would think the fruit would be sweet enough, it was too sharp of a contract. I'll try this again with a cobbler style topping. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
