4 servings


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 plums*, cut in half and pitted (See Cook's Note)
  • 6 apricots*, cut in half and pitted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. 

In another bowl, toss the plums, apricots, vanilla extract, and orange juice together. In a roasting pan or oven-proof baking dish, arrange the fruit cut-side up pouring any extra juice in the baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. 

Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until the fruit is fork tender.

Cook's Note

Cook's Note: Fruit should be ripe, yet still firm. Serving Suggestion: Serve the roasted fruit over vanilla bean ice cream, accompanied by a shortbread cookie. Alternatively, serve fruit with fresh whipped cream or creme fraiche and use it as a filling or topping for crepes.
