Blueberry-Plum Fried Fruit Pies

I was totally lame with picture-taking when I made these fried fruit pies.  But, they also went so quickly I really didn't get a chance!  The recipe is similar to my blueberry fried fruit pie recipe, but this time they have a yummy (and easy!) homemade pie filling packed with fresh blueberries and plums.  You'll love them. Enjoy!!!

Blueberry Plum Fried Fruit Pies
With delicious homemade filling!
Makes ~8 pies

To prepare filling:
Mix together in a large bowl:
1 – 1 ¼ cup blueberries, rinsed and drained
1 – 1 ¼ cup sliced, ripe plums (~4 plums)
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ cup cold water

Pop the filling into a large skillet over medium heat.   Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture starts to cook and thicken.  At this point, you’ll want to add more water (¼  – ½ cup) so it’s not too thick.  You’re aiming for a final consistency similar to the pie pudding filling from a can.  Cook, stirring, until blueberries have started bubbling and you’re happy with the consistency.   Remove from heat and let cool completely before using in fried fruit pies. I found it didn’t need covering. I’d give it a stir now and then as it cools.   Your filling will end up a lovely pink/purple color from the mixture of blueberries and plums.

To finish the fried fruit pies, follow the dough recipe and instructions from the blueberry fried fruit pie recipe, using your wonderful fresh blueberry-plum fruit filling to fill your pies.  Let cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
