    2      sheets        frozen puff pastry (17 1/4-ounce -- thawed
                         -- package)
    2      pounds        ripe nectarines -- peeled and diced
    1      cup           fresh blueberries
      3/4  cup           dried blueberries
      1/2  cup           hazelnuts -- toasted chopped
      1/3  cup           firmly packed light brown sugar
                         **Cinnamon syrup (one recipe)
    1 1/2  cups          water
      2/3  cup           sugar
    2      tablespoons   unsalted butter
    2      tablespoons   maple syrup
    1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
                         **To Serve:
                         Vanilla ice cream -- or
                         frozen yogurt
 
 Recipe: Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly butter two 9x13-inch baking dishes.
 
 On a lightly floured board, roll out the puff pastry to form two 12x14-inch
 rectangles. Spread one pastry with half each of the nectarines, both kinds
 of berries and nuts. Sprinkle with 2 1/2 tablespoons of the sugar. Starting
 on the longer side, roll the pastry up like a jellyroll and seal the edges
 with a little water. Cut into 2-inch slices. Repeat with the other pastry.
 
 Place the slices, cut surface down, in the baking dishes, being careful not
 to fit them in tightly. Pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the Cinnamon Syrup
 over the dumplings in each dish.
 
 Bake 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream and additional Cinnamon
 Syrup, if desired. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
 
 Cinnamon Syrup: In a heavy saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups water, 2/3 cup
 sugar, 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1
 teaspoon ground cinnamon and bring to a boil over medium-high heat,
 stirring until the sugar dissolves. Lower heat and simmer 8 to 10 minutes
 or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Serve warm.
