Looking for a distinctive dessert? Then check out these assorted fruits glazed and broiled to sweet perfection. Ready in 35 minutes!
cups bite-size pieces assorted fresh fruit (pineapple, pears, apples, kiwifruit, strawberries)
cup peach or apricot preserves
tablespoons butter or margarine
tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
teaspoon ground cinnamon
On each of sixteen 8-inch skewers, thread 4 to 6 pieces of fruit, including grapes. Place skewers on large cookie sheet; set aside.
In 1-quart saucepan, heat preserves, butter, liqueur and cinnamon over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted. Brush about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of preserves mixture over kabobs; reserve remaining preserves mixture.
Set oven control to broil. Broil kabobs with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 minutes or until fruit is hot and glaze is bubbly. Serve warm or cold with remaining preserves mixture.
•Always soak bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
•It might be more expensive, but buying already cut-up fruit is a trade-off if you want to save time.
