Whipped topping (optional)
Butter OR margarine
4 cups fresh plums, pitted and chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon honey
1/8 cup white sugar
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup butter OR margarine, chilled
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
FILLING - Generously butter a 1 and 1/2-quart baking dish. Place the sliced plum in the dish and sprinkle them with the 3/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Add the honey and vanilla, mix the filling together gently, and spread it evenly again.
TOPPING - Combine the white sugar, 1/8 cup brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut the chilled butter into the cinnamon mixture with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
NOTE - I really love the crumb topping so I usually double just the topping.
Generoulsy sprinkle the topping over the filling in the dish. Bake the crumble for 30 minutes. Serve it warm with whipped topping, if desired.
