Recipe by @sugarloafATL in partnership with Flavor Tree Fruit Company, growers of the Verry Cherry Plum- www.verrycherryplum.com
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. nutmeg
5 oz (10 Tbsp.) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. In separate medium bowl (or bowl of stand mixer, fitted with a paddle), cream together sugar and butter for a few minutes until light in color. Add in egg and vanilla, and mix just to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix until combines and forms a dough. Form dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2# Verry Cherry Plums, pitted and sliced
½ cup sugar
Juice of 1/2 of a lemon
2 Tbsp. corn starch
Combine fruit, sugar, lemon juice, and corn starch in a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for about 8-10 minutes, until juice thickens and has jam-like consistency. Let cool slightly.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup rolled oats
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp kosher salt
4 oz. unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
In medium bowl, whisk together flours, sugars, oats, cinnamon, and salt. Add in butter and mix with hands, breaking up butter until it is in small pea-sized pieces, and mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Pinch off 1 Tb of cookie dough and press into the bottom of each muffin cup. Drop a heaping teaspoon of jam in the center of each cookie, and sprinkle with a layer of streusel to cover.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Allow cookies to cool, then pop them out of the muffin tin using a butter knife or small spatula. Repeat with remaining ingredients (or you can make more at once if you have more than one muffin tin). Store in air-tight container at room temperature.

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp. finely grated lime zest
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup + 2 TB granulated sugar (separated)
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups Verry Cherry Plums, pitted and sliced in ½” thick slices
¾ cup heavy cream
3 strips lime peel
1 TB granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place butter in a medium skillet (8-10" stainless steel, non-stick, or cast-iron pan would work), or shallow baking dish equivalent in size. Transfer to pre-heated oven and heat about 4-6 minutes until butter is melted.
Meanwhile combine eggs, milk, lime zest, salt, vanilla, and sugar in a blender (or you can whisk with hand beaters or a stand mixer), and blend on HIGH for 2 minutes until frothy. Add in flour, and blend just to combine. Pour batter into hot pan. Arrange sliced fruit on top. Sprinkle top with remaining 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden brown. Let cool to luke warm, dust with powdered sugar if desired, and serve with Lime Cream.
To make Lime Cream:
Peel 3 strips of lime zest with a vegetable peeler. Place cold cream in bowl and add lime zest, twisting the lime zest strips to release their oils before dropping them in the bowl. Let zest steep in cream for at least 1 hour. Remove the zest strips. Sprinkle in the sugar. Whisk with hand beaters until medium-stiff peaks form.
Best when eaten same day, either warm or at room temperature. Great for breakfast or dessert!
