Aren't the plums pretty? I used a mixture of red and yellow plums for my crisp which is so easy. I also made some ice cream to eat with it. You can't have crisp with ice cream right? This was really good Sunday after our drive. We came home and had the Tomato Basil Soup with ham and cheese panini's. It was an easy dinner all made ahead of time. For the panini's I added a "cube" of pesto that I made and put in the freezer with some mayo for the sandwiches. Everything was excellent or maybe we were just hungry after our long drive.Pictures of before and after baking. It came out of the oven all bubbly and brown.
Hey Debbie this is for you!! I hope you enjoy it. The crisp is nice and warm with the cold ice cream. Yummy!!!
1/2 cup plus 1 T flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 T old fashioned oats (not quick cooking)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter cut into small pieces
2 1/2 lbs plums cut into 1" pieces
Preheat oven to 375. Mix together 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar, oats and salt in a bowl and cut butter until coarse crumbs form. I put it in the food processor and pulse. It is so much easier this way and a lot faster.
In a shallow 2-qt baking dish, toss plums with 2 T brown sugar and 1 T flour; sprinkle with crumb topping.
Bake until topping is golden brown 40-45 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes and enjoy!! Bon Appetit
I use the food processor whenever I cut butter into flour for biscuits or scones. It is so much easier and faster than using a pastry blender. I made a scone recipe a couple of years ago that used this method and I've been doing it ever since for everything.
