Prepare pastry – combine flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon, cut in shortening
(may use butter if desired). Make well in center, add milk, blend. Mix to a
dough, wrap and let chill for 20-30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Roll pastry to line a 10″ pie pan, trim and crimp edges, prick bottom and
sides with fork and bake for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Rinse plums, cut in half, remove pits. Place in saucepan with brown sugar
over low heat. (They are moist enough not to need any water.) Cover and
simmer gently for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and using slotted spoon
remove plums. Reserve juices.

Spread cream cheese evenly over bottom of pastry, arrange plums over
cheese. Whisk cornstarch into plum juices, return to heat, stirring until
thickens, cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes. Remove from heat
and stir in Kirsch, pour over plums, using a pastry brush to spread the
mixture evenly. Chill until the glaze has set.

A soft, beautiful dish that will appeal to the esthetic in Taurus. Plum
tart is particularly delicious served with whipped cream or a thick custard
and a sweet white dessert wine.
