from plum crumble . . .

there were some lovely red plums at whole foods the other day.  i bought a whole bunch and loosely followed the barefoot contessa’s recipe to make them into a plum crumble.

the recipe makes a lot of plum crumble…fortunately, it goes really well with vanilla ice cream and can be easily assembled into a plum crumble layered short cake!

i even baked some leftover plum crumble into yogurt cake! stay tuned for the recipe soon…
