We are big fans of using seasonal produce in everything we cook, especially in desserts that call for of lots of succulent fruit. This recipe for plum-and-blackberry cornmeal-almond crumb bars comes from Martha Stewart’s latest cookbook, Cookie Perfection, and eating it is like sinking your teeth into the best parts of summer. To get the right texture for these bad boys, make sure to pick your plums with care. You don’t want ones that are too juicy, so look for those with a low moisture content (such as yellow-fleshed Italian prune plums), and combine them with another stone fruit or berries—like these plump, sweet blackberries. Taste-test your blackberries though. If they’re tart, temper them with an equal amount of blueberries.  —J&H
