Plum Cobbler

3 lbs. Melissa’s Organic Plum Bites, seeded, cut into thin wedges

1/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1 teaspoon cornstarch

 

Topping

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Few gratings fresh nutmeg

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1/4 cup boiling water

 

Sanding sugar for top

 

Preheat oven to 425°F.

 

Toss plums with sugar, lemon juice, almond extract, and cornstarch in a 2-qt. nonreactive baking dish and bake in middle of the oven 10 minutes.

 

While plums are baking. Place all topping ingredients EXCEPT WATER into a food processor, and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. With motor running, stream in water just until combined.

 

Remove plums from oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. (Topping will spread as it bakes.) Sprinkle with sanding sugar, if desired. Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden, about 20-25 minutes.
