Plum Delicious!

Jim picked up some plums last week at the market, handed them to me and said, "Could you make me a plum cobbler?" How could I say no, the plums looked great and I've never made a cobbler with plums before. Strawberries, peaches, and blackberries, yes, but plums, no. I also saw it as a way to learn to like plums. Not that I dislike them but because I've never been a big fruit eater. And if a cobbler is the vehicle I need to learn to better enjoy a fruit, then I'll gladly make the effort.

I used a fairly simple recipe for the cobbler part.......Bisquick. Yeah, I know but it's easy and quick. The only thing I added to the basic recipe was some cinnamon.

Plum Cobbler
Topping:

2 cup Bisquick

1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon


Filling:

12 plums, pitted then cut them into 8ths

1 cup sugar
3 tbsp of cornstarch

1 tsp vanilla
pinch of cinnamon

Mix all the topping ingredients together and set aside. Mix all the filling ingredients, stirring well. Pour filling into an 8" x 8" baking dish.

Using a large spoon, drop topping over the filling. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.


Serve warm with your favorite flavor of ice cream. (we had black walnut on hand and used it.)

I made it this afternoon with the kids (they did everything but cut up the fruit) - ours was peach and blueberry, and it was YUMMY! Even my chocoholic daughter enjoyed it (after the disppointment in learning there was no chocolate - wonder who she gets that from?). Thanks for the recipe!

mmm, peach and blueberry. Sounds like a winner to me....even if there wasn't any chocolate in it. :)
