Quick and easy to make, this is a dessert winner adapted from one of my favorite recipe sites, Food52. The flavors can be adjusted to suit your sweet tooth: use vanilla extract instead of almond and swap out the sliced almonds for walnuts. Try it with sweet, tart beach plum jam.
The beach plum is a coveted stone fruit found on Cape Cod. It is typically harvested by foraging wild, secret spots along the beaches and bays.
