This appealed to me, because in Christmases of old, they talked about "sugar plums". That may have been a candy, but I like to sometimes showcase a recipe, that is a little different--not same old, same old. So, give plums a chance!

This recipe is from The Pampered Chef's "Recipes from the Heart Cookbook".
