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

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon.

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

Cook’s Note
