  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter and pulse a few seconds at a time until its crumb is pea-size. Add the cream cheese and pulse again until the dough just begins to form. Remove the dough from the food processor and form into a rectangle with your hands.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough into a 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick rectangle. Line the dough into a rectangular 35 x 10 m (14 x 4-inch) tart plate with a removable bottom. Remove any excess dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or freeze for 15 minutes. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  3. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack.


  1. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 °F (180 °C).
  2. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients until smooth. Pour the filling into the crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the filling is set but still slightly wobbly. If the crust has cooled before filling it, you may have to add 5 minutes of baking. Let cool on a wire rack. Chill for 2 hours.


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar and vanilla to a boil. Simmer for about 2 minutes or until the sugar has completely dissolved. Let the syrup cool. Pour into a large bowl. Add the plums and toss well.
  2. Spread half the plums on the surface of the tart. When ready to serve, garnish with the remaining plums and a little syrup.
