This recipe takes its inspiration from the Sugar Plums made famous in the popular nursery rhyme, “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. However this recipe combines the real fruit with a sweet and delicious glaze that can be made in under 5 minutes.

Why I love this recipe

Elegant enough for guests, but simple enough that you can make it in a pinch.

Directions

Notes

It's best to make this recipe with plums that are ripe but not mushy. To make a kid-friendly version, omit the liquor.

Step 1

Melt the butter in a large pan over low heat.

Step 2

Add the brown sugar and stir, being very careful not to burn (it will turn bitter).

Step 3

Cook for 1-2 minutes until syrupy.

Step 4

Pour in the triple sec and stir to combine.

Step 5

Add the plums and nutmeg and toss gently.

Step 6

Continue to cook for a few more minutes until the plums are warmed and covered in glaze.

Step 7

Plate individually or on a platter and serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
