"We really enjoyed this recipe. Used more peaches than plums, but it was still wonderful. Next time I'll try it with apples and without the sliced almonds. Fantastic with vanilla ice cream! :)"

"My family loved this recipe, we used apples instead of plums. Put cool whip on it. We also used splenda sugar to cut some calories."
