I know it is January and that stone fruits are not exactly in season in most locales. However, we tend to get some pretty decent fruit from far away places here in Vermont.
Plum and nectarines are delicious in this quick crisp recipe. They are tossed with some sugar and lemon then baked under a buttery, nutty oat topping. Ice cream is the perfect accompaniment.
4 cups sliced plums
4 cups sliced nectarines
1/2 cup plus 3 Tbs flour, divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
2. In a large bowl, stir together plums, nectarines, 3 Tbs flour and next 3 ingredients.
3. Place fruit mixture in an 11 x 8-inch baking dish.
4. In same bowl, stir together butter, remaining 6 ingredients and remaining 1/2 cup flour. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.
5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.
