Roasted Plums with Ice Cream is a simple dessert with a secret --- roasting makes even rock-hard fruit absolutely luscious!


serves 4

Total time

0 minutes




  • 2 lbs plums (or other stone fruit, apricots work well)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp bourbon
  • juice of lemon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste (or the seeds of a vanilla bean)
  • Vanilla Ice cream


  1. Set oven to 425F
  2. Halve and pit the plums. If the pits don't come out easily, use a small spoon to gouge them out. If the fruit is large, cut it into quarters. Toss with the sugar, bourbon, lemon juice, and vanilla and put it in a baking pan just large enough to allow them to form a single layer.
  3. Roast for about 20 minutes, tossing once or twice, until they become bubbly, soft, and juicy.
  4. Remove and let cool slightly before layering into small bowls or glasses with the ice cream.
