I was not able to make this dish as written. Apparently it is impossible to buy plums in Michigan in December, so I substituted pears. The pears were much more firm than the plums would have been, so they didn't soften up as much as I would like. Also, I didn't have the almonds. But the sour cream/brown sugar topping was delicious. Thanks for the recipe; I can't wait to make it with the plums next summer!
They made the house smell like Christmas while cooking and they are delicious. This is another one of those sweet and tart and creamy and crunchy dishes that I dearly love. Thanks for posting this! I recommend it highly.
