Thank you for posting this. This sounds like a recipe I made many years ago. I accidentally threw away the recipe. It was delicious and a great way to use up any extra plums. The only ingredient I remember was to use what I call Italian plums or the small purple ones. Does it matter what type of plums to use? Thank you.

Wow, there are more people like me out there. These were always my favorites growing up. I loved September, when the plums are at their best. My grammy would make these. I've made them a few times, and also the plum noodle casseroles(often). This recipe is cheating, but the taste is there.

FYI, canned plums work very well when you can't get the right ones.
