Plum Betty

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
We found that this betty, which consists of layered fruit, sugar, and breadcrumbs or cookie crumbs, is even better when served warm with low-fat vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups sliced plums (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup soft oatmeal-raisin cookie crumbs (about 3 cookies, such as Archway)
  • 2 tablespoons stick margarine or butter, melted
  • Cooking spray
