I call this 4 x 2 Plums because I used 4 plums and made two sweet treats. The first one was for dinner and the second was a delicious side plum sauce with crumble for breakfast the next day – easy 4 x 2 Plums!
4 Ripe plums
1 TBS honey
1 TBS room temperature butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup crushed cookies (I had biscotti so that’s what I used)
1 TBS sugar
DIRECTIONS for Round 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Half and core the plums. Place them in a small baking dish and drizzle tops with the honey. Bake for 15-20 minutes until they start to soften.
Place nuts and sugar in a small stove top skillet and cook until they start to brown. Watch them carefully as the sugar and nuts will burn easily.
Remove plums from the oven and set aside. Mix sugar-nut mix with crushed cookies and butter. Top each plum with the crunchy mixture and place under broiler for 3-5 minutes or until the topping starts to brown.
DIRECTIONS for Round 2
Round two is because I have leftovers of round 1. Remove the crunchy mixture from the plums and place in a zip-top bag and refrigerate over night.
Peel and dice the plums and place them is an air-tight container overnight. In the morning, cook the peeled and diced plums on medium heat on the stove top for 20-25 minutes. Stir the mixture occasionally. Remove from heat and then top with the crunchy mixture.
You could serve this as a fruit sauce with breakfast or top plain Greek yogurt with the plums and crunch mixture to be a stand-alone breakfast. Enjoy!
