Plump Crisp is an easy and delish summer dessert. I don't use too much sugar in the crisp, but if you like a sweeter filling, you can use 2 tablespoons of sugar. Also, I like to sprinkle the top generously with the sugar (I prefer natural sugar), to make the top crunchy and to catch any juices.
Before baking, you may want to put a sheet of aluminum foil to catch bubbling juices.
Serve with an Ice Cream. I haven't tried yet, but I think a frosty glass of rose will make a good accompaniment to the crisp as well. —Katya Moskalenko
2. To make the fruit filling, in a large saucepan, melt 25g of butter, add 1 tablespoon of sugar (see the description), plums and 1 tablespoon of water.
3. Add cinnamon stick, lemon peel, and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. For the topping, in a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, grounded cinnamon and salt. Add melted butter and mix everything to form a crumbly texture.
5. Remove the cinnamon stick and lemon peel. Transfer the fruit mixture into the baking dish, then scatter the topping on top. Scatter sugar and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and the juices are bubbling.
6. Remove from the oven. Serve with Ice Cream or yogurt.
