Plum Crumble

Serves 6 to 8

Sweet summer stone fruit shines in this simple crumble, using crushed cookies and almonds in the topping. Let the kids help; the only special equipment needed is their hands!

  • 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 pounds 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.
