This desert is a delicious way to use summer plums and blueberries. We like it served warm with ice-cream for desert or cold with sour cream for breakfast. Original recipe printed in Bon Appetit (October, 1984). Prep time includes refrigeration and standing time (30-60 minutes)

A great way to use summer fruits. I served a Margarita Dip recipe #68661 on it.Very easy to make.

This dish is tart and sweet. A nice combination. I used pluots instead of plums, and added some lemon rind to the filling. I also doubled the amounts for the topping, as we love the 'crisp'. Overall a nice brunch or late night snack. Thanks for Sharing!
