Happy April Fools' Day! Okay, so there's no special warthog contest -- but here's a recipe we like!

Wine-Stewed Prunes and Mascarpone

Adapted from Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, the owners of Frankies Spuntino

Serves 6

  • 1 pound pitted prunes (about 40)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 1/2 cups dry red wine
  • 2 8-ounce containers mascarpone

1. Combine prunes, sugar, cinnamon and wine in a pot over medium-high heat. When mixture boils, reduce to simmer and cook 45 minutes, until liquid has turned to syrup.

2. Remove from heat, and rest at least 15 minutes. Spread a mound of mascarpone on each serving plate, top with 6 prunes and drizzle with syrup. Serve immediately.
