Bigger Empress plums work well as an alternative to Italian prune plums, as do apricots. Or try a combination of plums and apricots.
The biscuit is out of this world! So tender and yummy. I made this as written with a large bag of Italian prune plums we got as a gift. Will definitely make again and will use the biscuit topping recipe for other kinds of cobblers.
My husband and I tried this for the first time tonight. We decided this is the best way we have ever eaten Italian plums! Amazing! The cobbler melts in your mouth. It's nice that it doesn't use much sugar. The fruit color is beautiful red once cooked.
I didn't have cardamom, so we skipped that. I also skipped the turbinado sugar and just used granulated sugar.
Cannot imagine how this recipe could be better! And, I can see how it could be used for other fruit cobblers. The other reviewer said the cobbler could be used for strawberry shortcake. That sounds fantastic!
This is THE BEST sweet cream biscuit recipe, I have been using it for years now! I make cobblers with all sorts of fruit (cherries, berries, and other slightly tart fruits work best). I also use the sweet cream recipe for strawberry shortcake!
