Plum Turnovers

Well the barrage of plums has started on my Golden plum tree. I don't know if plum trees are self pollinating or not, but I have 1 plum tree loaded with tons of fruit. Well maybe not tons but a lot. But you know you are about to be inundated with recipes for plums.
I have taken my first donation to the food bank, and came up with an easy recipe for plum turn overs. Alas I have no pictures, cause they went fast, but they were good... a little tart but sweet.

Rob's Plum Turnovers

1 sheet of Puff Pastry, thawed
about 1 pound of plums, sliced and pitted
3/4 cups of sugar or splenda
1 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp. water, for egg wash

Preheat oven to 400
Mix the plums, sugar/splenda, flour and lemon juice well. Spoon onto puff pastry that has been sliced to about 3" X 6" rectangles. Fold over plum mix to make a triangle. Brush the turnovers with the egg wash. Seal the puff pastry with a fork or pie crimper or use your fingers. Make sure you slice a vent on the top of the crust. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool, serve. Really good with Ice Cream.

Please make more and take pictures.

I think the Asian plum trees are self-pollinating, and the European aren't. Or maybe the other way around.

Trust me abs- there will be more and maybe a plum crumble/crisp. Keep this up and I will learn to make a plum pie.
