- STEP 1
Preheat the oven 150 degrees centigrade. Cream butter and sugar together.
- STEP 2
Add egg and mix. Add the flour mixing as you go.
- STEP 3
Once mixed together place the pastry in a lined baking tray (23.5 x 30cm (9¼” x 12”)). The mixture may seem crumbly, this is ok, compact the mixture by pushing it into the tray- it should all merge together.
- STEP 4
Cut the plums into half and place the halves in rows along the pastry. Leave about 5mm of pastry showing between each half. Press gently into the mix.
- STEP 5
Place dabs of butter across the top and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the tart.
- STEP 6
Place in oven for 25-30 mins until golden brown and the plums are wrinkled in texture.
- STEP 7
Best eaten hot with ice cream, although delicious cold.
