"Since this recipe was published in our local paper in 1976, I've served it numerous times to family and friends," recalls Arlis Enburg, Rock Island, Illinois. "Similar to a cobbler, it is always a favorite at gatherings."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup plus 5 teaspoons sugar, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tube (7-1/2 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated and quartered

"this is easy to make and absolutely delicious. The plums are sweet and tart at the same time and the biscuits with cinnamon and sugar is the perfect topping."
