I get lots of plums from neighbors who are glad to share. My husband loves this special dessert. Of course, he claims to only like two kinds of pies—warm ones and cold ones!—Shirley Smith, Noti, Oregon

"We have a plum tree in our backyard and it produces the tastiest plums!! When there are plenty of plums, this recipe is a GREAT way to use them up! Everybody LOVES this recipe! I've found that 5 saltines make about 1/4 of crumbs."
