Instructions

  • Place 30 grams of butter, the lemon juice and two tablespoons of sugar into a small saucepan.
  • Cut the plums into small pieces, throw away the pips and put the pieces into the saucepan.
  • Stir and simmer for about two minutes with the lid off. Then place the lid on the saucepan and simmer for another 3 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowl you will cook the crumble in and leave to cool.
  • Place the Amaretti cookies in a plastic food bag and using your fist grind the cookies into very small crumble like bits. Do not over grind into a powder as the crumble effect will be lost.
  • Put the ground Amaretti cookies into a bowl and add in the 100 grams of butter which have been cut into small squares, the 150 grams of flour, the 1 teaspoon of baking powder and the 3 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Using your fingers mix the ingredients until you have a crumble like topping.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the plums leaving a small gap on the side so the plum juice can bubble through when cooking.
  • Place in oven at 190 degrees and cook for 50 minutes or until the topping is a golden brown.
  • Serve warm with your favorite ice cream or cream topping.
