Re: Daily Check In, August 11th

Re: Daily Check in Aug 8, 2016

Jackie, thinking about your abundance of plums... I used to make a plum kuchen in my TeaRoom. It was really good and everyone loved it. Basically a shortbread type crust in a tart pan or pie pan, sliced plums in concentric circles to cover, very light sprinkle of sugar then a thin sugar cream pie fi...
