Maple-Ricotta Parfaits with Almonds & Plums
Heat butter in a sauté 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 1/2 cup maple syrup and ricotta; set aside.
Divide 1/2 cup plum slices among 4 clear bowls or brandy glasses. Follow with ricotta, and then remaining plum slices. Drizzle with remaining maple syrup, and sprinkle with almonds. Serve.
