Melt butter and then roughly crumble digestives into the butter, crumbled biscuits should all be coated with butter .

Halve the plums and place cut side up in a baking dish where they fit snugly.

Sprinkle sugar evenly over the plums, then stuff with biscuit filling.

Pour wine and juice around the plums add half the vanilla bean and the cinnamon stick.

Bake plums in oven until they are tender, if filling starts to burn cover with foil.
