Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat butter in a saute pan. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and gently stir in plum slices. Cook on medium heat just until plums are soft and giving out some juice, but still holding their shape.
- Meanwhile, stir together the remaining maple syrup and ricotta. Set aside.
- Divide 1/2 cup prepared plum slices among 4 clear bowls or brandy glasses. Follow with a layer of ricotta mixture, then remaining plum slices, and then the remaining ricotta mixture. Drizzle with remaining maple syrup, and sprinkle with roasted almonds.

"I love this recipe!! I love almond-anything, and the combination of dairy/fruit/nut in this parfait was so yummy. I used home-canned peaches instead of plums (since I had them on hand), so I skipped..." See more the directions related to the plums. I also added some almond extract to the ricotta/maple syrup mixture. And I carmelized the almonds in sugar so they were sweet and crunchy. This makes an excellent healthy dessert, or even something to serve as a side. "
"This recipe as written was not particularly good. The plums sauteed in maple syrup and butter was very good, but the ricotta cheese mixed with maple syrup was gritty and not enjoyable to eat. I remove..." See mored the ricotta and used cream instead (without the syrup). I also shaved some dark chocolate over the top. The revised dish was a hit."
