Nectarine-Cherry Compote Recipe

I sometimes use half a vanilla bean in this dessert. Just scrape the seeds into the baking dish and tuck the pod under the fruit. Either way, this fruity treat is a standout! —Maria Breiner, Schwenksville, Pennsylvania

"The most delicious recipe for summer! I used plums from my plum tree instead of the cherries! Great recipe!"
