Kendra's plum/cherry cobbler

Last year my friend Kendra made THE most amazing plum cobbler at the end of the season. I've been dreaming of it ever since. So I set out to make some for my parents...who had an excess of cherries, not plums. Trust me - both versions are delicious! My cherries were very juicy, so I made a 1.5 size batch of the topping, but the original Kendrecipe is below.

5 cups fresh plums OR cherries, pitted and quartered
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted

Combine fruit and brown sugar, stir well. Poor into a buttered baking dish. (Don't skimp on size - it will bubble as it bakes!)

Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Add beaten egg, stirring with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit and then drizzle melted butter on top. Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned.

...and I bet it was even better with your homemade ice cream!
