Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  sliced almonds
  • 4  Tablespoons  cold, unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1  Teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 20  Vanilla or lemon wafers
  • plums, pitted and chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, use your hands to mash together the almonds, butter, cinnamon, and wafers until well combined but still fairly coarse. Arrange plums in a 9-inch pie 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.

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Plum Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
