  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat; spray with cooking spray. Add the plums, cut-side down, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, just until charred. Remove from the heat.

  • In a bowl, combine the flour, 4 tablespoons of the turbinado sugar, and the butter, lemon zest and cinnamon. Mix with your hands and squeeze gently to create dime-size clumps.

  • In four 4-ounce Mason jars, add 1 tablespoon of the crumble; then add a plum half, grilled-side up. Score the plums in a criss-cross patternthis will allow the flavors to seep into the plums and make them easier to eat later. Fill each pit divot with 1 teaspoon bourbon and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar. Divide the remaining crumble evenly between the jars. Set the jars in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish; pour 1/4 cup water into the baking dish.

  • Bake on the center rack until the plums are soft and the crumble is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool.

  • Garnish each serving with a tablespoon of whipped cream. Serve.
