For a classic dessert, I whip up this delicious recipe. It is so pretty served in parfait dishes or dessert dishes.—Marie Zillmann, Glenview, Illinois


  • 14 pitted dried plums (prunes)
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped


  1. Place plums in a saucepan; cover with water. Cover and cook until tender; drain. Puree in a blender or food processor. Add sugar and vanilla; mix well. Pour into a bowl; cool.
  2. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Chill for at least 2 hours.
