while i was at my mom's house last week, enjoying a late summer garden bounty, i made some apple-plum crisp. i started out loosely following this recipe for spiced apple crisp, from epicurious...
but i couldn't resist adding some of these plums.
i also added a cup of oat flakes, and some chopped pecans, and some cinnamon and a pinch of salt to the topping.
my adjustments made for a lot of topping, which i mixed in just a bit.
