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

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.
