  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and flour until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and brown sugar; toss blackberries and plums in mixture until fruit is coated.
  2. Pour fruit mixture onto 4 pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the topping. Add the butter, mixing by hand, until small crumbles form.
  4. Sprinkle the mixture over the fruit* and cook for 20 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the top is golden.
  5. Remove packets from heat; let stand 5 minutes before opening. *If preparing ahead of time, wait to top the fruit with the crumb mixture until you are ready to cook the packets.
