Ingredients
CRISP:
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts
FILLING:
  • about 10-12 ripe plums
  • about 3-4 ripe peaches
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
Instructions
  1. For the crust, combine all ingredients. Place on a baking sheet, and bake at 350F for about 15 minutes, until brown. Remove from oven, but leave oven on.
  2. Meanwhile, for the filling, dice 1 peach and about 4 plums and place in a saucepan. Add sugar, water, and cornstarch and bring to a boil. Use a potato masher to mash cooked fruit. Let boil about a minute, until thick. Remove from heat, add extract and butter.
  3. Slice the remaining peaches and plums and place in a large bowl. Pour filling over the top, and stir to coat.
  4. Break up the crisp with a fork. Place about half the crisp in the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Pour fruit filing over the top. Top with remaining crisp.
  5. Bake an additional 25-30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or half and half.
