Gingered Plum Streusel Pie Recipe

This falls into the category of simple fruit pie, as its main ingredient is fruit. However, the addition of some assertive flavors — ginger and lemon — elevate the finished product above the ordinary.

one 9" pie, 8 servings


Choose your measure:



  • 4 cups chopped red or purple plums
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Streusel Topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  3. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes at room temperature.
  4. To make the streusel topping: Combine the flour, sugar, and ginger. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

  6. Spoon the filling into the crust.
  7. Top the pie with the streusel topping.

  10. Store the pie, covered, in the fridge for up to 5 days.
