  • 6

    large ripe plums sliced into approximately ½-inch slices

  • ¼ to ½

    cup brown or turbinado sugar (amount depends on how sweet you like it and how sweet the plums are)

  • ¼

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • teaspoon nutmeg

  • teaspoon allspice

  • Pinch of salt

  • For the crust:

  • 1

    cup flour

  • ¼

    cup cornmeal

  • 2

    tablespoons brown sugar + a little more to sprinkle on top of each cobbler

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 3

    tablespoons cold unsalted butter in tbs size pieces

  • ¼

    cup sour cream

  • ¼

    cup cold milk


Combine sliced plums with sugar and spices, stir, and set aside. Preheat oven to 375° F. Place dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the butter, and work it into the dry ingredients with your hands or a pastry cutter until it resembles pea-sized crumbs. Add the sour cream and milk, and stir just to combine. Spoon your plums into ramekins, then spread enough of the dough on top to cover the fruit. Sprinkle with a little brown sugar (optional). Place ramekins on a sheet pan and bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is bubbly.
