Plum Crumble

Plum Crumble

Make this savory crumble with your kids. Serves 6 to 8.


  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 20 vanilla or lemon wafer cookies
  • 1 1/2 pound pounds plums (about 6), pitted and chopped


Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mash together almonds, butter, cinnamon and cookies until well combined but still fairly coarse. Arrange plums in a (9-inch) pie dish or 8-inch square baking dish, and top with almond mixture, pressing it together in handfuls, and then scattering it in large pieces over the top.

Bake until plums are tender and juicy and almond mixture is golden, 45 to 50 minutes. (To avoid burning, tent with foil during baking, if needed.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
