You can substitute hazelnuts for almonds and, for the most flavor, toast the nuts before adding them to the topping mixture.
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.
Notes
If you happen to have old-fashioned rolled oats in your pantry, use them instead of quick-cooking oats. They will add a bit more texture to the topping.
