Love this recipe! So simple!
My family love crumble so I added more crumble topping but wow it tastes great.
Only negative other than it's not a never ending plate is in the ingredients you forgot the plums, luckily when shopping I knew I was making a plum crumble so didn't forget them, but as I like trying new recipes and often just take the ingredient list to the shop I was very lucky it was called PLUM, pear and pecan crumble!!
