Very easy to make with quick prep and the dough was very simple with all ingredients always in the pantry. Turned out good, just the right sweetness in the bottom dough and nicely balanced with the slightly tart plums. Looked nice too, light tasting once cut into squares. I made 1/2 batch and used an 11x7 inch pan. Great way to use up some leftover fresh plums we had.
