This impressive-looking plum-almond crisp is perfect for you to serve as dessert for yourself as well as a special someone in your life. It's easy enough to assemble; just sprinkle the oat-almond crumble over the fruit, which is flavored with sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. You can substitute hazelnuts for almonds and, for the most flavor, toast whichever nuts you choose before adding them to the topping mixture. If you happen to have old-fashioned rolled oats in your pantry, you should use those instead of quick-cooking oats called for here. They will add a bit more texture to the topping.

Ingredients

plum(s)

4 item(s), medium, halved, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

sugar

3 Tbsp

fresh lemon juice

½ tsp

ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

table salt

tsp

uncooked rolled oats

2 Tbsp, quick-cooking

all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp

sliced almonds

1 Tbsp, coarsely chopped

regular butter

1 tsp, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray 2 (6-ounce) custard cups with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine the plums, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, the lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Divide the plum mixture between the custard cups.
  3. Combine the oats, flour, almonds, the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, and the melted butter in a small bowl until crumbs form. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the plum mixture then lightly spray with nonstick spray.
  4. Place the custard cups on a small baking sheet. Bake the crisps until the filling is bubbling and the top is golden, 25–30 minutes. Yields 1 crisp per serving.
