Glazed Plum Pastry
Juicy plums, apricot preserves, and ground cinnamon amp up the flavor in this summery treat.

Ingredients
3 tablespoons sucralose-sugar blend, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 package (about 17 ounces) frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
8 plums (about 2 pounds)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar-free apricot preserves

Directions
Yield: 20 servings

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 18×12-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine 2 tablespoons sucralose-sugar blend and flour in small bowl.

2 – Unfold pastry sheets on prepared baking sheet. Place pastry sheets side by side so fold lines are parallel to length of baking sheet. Arrange sheets so they overlap 1/2 inch in center. Press center seam firmly to seal. Trim ends so pastry fits on baking sheet. Prick entire surface of pastry with fork.

3 – Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over pastry to within 1/2 inch of edges. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until pastry is slightly puffed and golden.

4 – Cut plums in half lengthwise; remove pits. Cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices slightly overlapping in 5 rows down length of pastry. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon sucralose-sugar blend and cinnamon in small bowl; sprinkle evenly over plums.

5 – Bake 15 minutes or until plums are tender and pastry is browned. Remove to wire rack.

6 – Microwave preserves in small microwavable bowl on HIGH 30 to 40 seconds or until melted. Brush preserves over plums. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Pork and Plum Kabobs
With the summer sun shining, there’s no better time to get out and get grilling! These juicy kabobs combine seasoned, slightly spicy pork with peak-season plums for a sweet and savory dish that can’t be beat. Pair with a crisp, cool salad for a perfect complement to barbecue season.

Ingredients
3/4 pound boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup raspberry fruit spread
1 tablespoon orange juice
3 plums or nectarines, pitted and cut into wedges

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 2 kabobs

1 – Place pork in large resealable food storage bag. Combine cumin, cinnamon, salt, garlic powder, and red pepper in small bowl; pour over pork. Seal bag; shake to coat meat with spices.

2 – Combine green onions, fruit spread, and orange juice in small bowl; set aside.

3 – Prepare grill for direct cooking. Alternately thread pork and plum wedges onto eight skewers.* Grill kabobs over medium heat 12 to 14 minutes or until meat is cooked through, turning once. Brush frequently with raspberry mixture during last 5 minutes of grilling.

*Note: If using wood skewers, soak in warm water 30 minutes to prevent burning.

Serving Suggestion: A crisp, cool salad makes a great accompaniment to these sweet grilled kabobs.
