Roasted Plums with Pistachios and Mascarpone

Roasted Plums with Pistachios and Mascarpone
It’s officially Fall! While I do love my heat and sunshine, I am a sucker for the baking season. This Roasted Plums recipe is such a great dessert using plums (or stone fruit) and it can be a nice lighter dessert after a holiday meal. Or just a way to use up that fruit in your fridge…

You can prep the roasted plums the night before, they keep in the fridge for a week. I actually found when they soaked in the juices overnight, they had more depth of flavour.

You can actually use them for other things,

  • top ice cream
  • puree for a cocktail
  • sauce
  • a cobbler
  • juice

Can you make plum juice? Is it good? I’m curious! Is there anything else you could use these for? Do share below in the comments! I love to hear your feedback and opinions.

And being half Italian, I love mascarpone! I grew up with it, I buy it just because and will find any way to use it. Even if it’s just a scoop with honey drizzled on top. No shame here folks! But if you don’t have mascarpone, try creme fraiche or a whip cream.

I highly suggest trying out this roasted plums dessert recipe for the holidays, that random rainy day (who am I kidding, from now till April, Vancouver only knows of rain), that sugar craving or just because. Seriously, it’s soooo easy to make! And try to use local honey, really makes a difference instead of those ones shaped like bears at the store. I use Drizzle Honey, it’s da bomb!

Enjoy!!! Hope you love this dessert as much as I did.

    Roasting plums, what a delicious idea! I have a huge bag of plums from our tree, so I think I know what Thanksgiving dessert will be 🙂

      Yay! You can roasted them a day or two ahead and actually they taste better that way.
