The sweet crunchy topping compliments the tartness of the plums. I serve this warm with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl toss plums, flour, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together.
  3. Pour into ungreased 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

  5. Mix with a fork until crumbly.
  6. Distribute topping mixture evenly over plums (I use my hands for this).
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until topping is crispy and golden brown.

The recipe was a good starting point. I made a couple of changes. I used Italian prune plums and decreased the amount to 3 cups, which is about 1 lb. I also decreased the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and added a 1/4 cup white sugar. I used soften butter instead of melted butter. The resulting crisp was delicious. Fruity and not too sweet.

Excellent!! I will be making this again and again! I mixed all the filling ingredients together, and let them sit for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then I baked it in a 9-inch stoneware pie pan and for about 55 minutes.

Great recipe. Added a touch more sugar and butter to the crisp. Doubled the crisp. And at the end turned up the heat to 400 for 5 minutes to get it super crispy. Yummy.
