4 cups thinly sliced pitted plums (6-8 medium plums)
3 tablespoons Gold Medal™ Wondra® quick-mixing flour
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1-1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper and lightly grease with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, toss the plums and Wondra flour until plums are well coated. Squeeze with lemon juice and stir until well combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cut in the butter and vanilla until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. You can use a pastry cutter, two forks or your hands for this step.
Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumbs into prepared baking dish. Arrange plums evenly over top. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Let cool at least 30 minutes before removing from the baking dish and cutting into squares.
