Date: September 29, 2016
  • 3 pounds Italian prune plums, pitted and quarter
  • 1½ cups light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons crème de cassis liqueur
  • For the topping:
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced
Preparation Steps:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. For the fruit, in a large bowl, combine the plums, brown sugar, flour, and cassis. Pour the mixture into a 12 x 8 inch shallow baking dish.
