It’s crisp time! I’m so ready for fruit season that I could not wait to post this recipe. I actually made this crisp last year but ran out of time to post it SOOOOOO I’m posting it now. Plus posting this sends out all those “FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY CAN IT JUST BE SPRING ALREADY” vibes. I mean, I know I have been complaining about the weather pretty much non-stop but I just need my windows open. Why can’t mother nature understand that?

Plus it snowed 6 inches yesterday. So rude.

So while I can’t run away to somewhere warm I’m going to just stare at this dessert and imagine it’s warm. It’s the little things in life that bring small doses of happiness.

Now, onto things that do not make a total whiner. I finally hired a house cleaner so I no longer have to worry about the state of my bathroom when guests come over, I’m getting a quote to paint the whole house AND I had a fantastic customer service experience. To be honest, even with the snow on the ground it was a pretty good day.

Oh, and that customer service thing? Well, my most favorite sheets had a clearance sale and I bought the wrong size bottom sheet! I knew I couldn’t send them back because they were clearance BUT they told me if I donated the sheet they would send me the correct size! YES! One point for Brooklinen! Not only are their sheets amazing they are amazing!

And no. This is not a sponsored post. I buy this sheets with my hard earned cash money.

Ok, back to this crisp. It’s packed full of fresh plums and mixed with vanilla bean paste and cardamom and then topped with the perfect crunchy rolled oats and hazelnut topping. It’s so good and even better when you eat it straight from the oven. Is there anything better than fresh warm crisp straight from the oven?

I made this dish at the end of summer and it was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC, do you think it’d work with frozen peaches? Thawed, of course. Thanks!

This looks great! Did you peel the plums or just slice and pit?

Hi June! I just sliced and pit. I don't typically peel because I'm lazy, hahaha.
