Pluots are cross between plums and apricots. Totally tempting fruit with its juicy and tart flavors. This Pluot crisp recipe is so simple to put together and bake,you'd want to try this often while the pluot season lasts.
To keep this more naturally sweet , I add raisins and chopped dates for the chewy sweetness which compliment very well with the tart flavor of pluots.
