Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Apricot Pastry with Persimmon Glaze


John's comment when eating this was, "Do you have some way to mark really good recipes, so that they get made again and not just forgotten?"  My solution?  Put it on the blog.

Apricot Pastry with Persimmon Glaze
 
Combine:
1-1/3 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1 T. dry milk powder
 
Cut in:
4 oz. cream cheese
10 T. butter
 
Stir to add:
1/4 c. water
1/2 t. almond extract
 
The dough will be fairly crumbly; knead just enough to allow dough to be rolled out.  Roll out to fit a baking sheet.
 
Spread down center of rolled-out dough:
 
1/4 c. apricot preserves
 
 
Make cuts from long edges of dough to the apricot preserves, then fold the cuts diagonally over the preserves:
 
 
 
Once all the dough has been cut and folded, bake in 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.
 
 
Persimmon Glaze
 
Combine:
1-1/4 c. powdered sugar
puree of 1 small peeled persimmon (about 2 T)
1 T milk
1 t. dried grated orange peel
 
Pour glaze over warm pastry.
 

 
 

Thanks for willing guinea pigs for new recipes.

  1. I put things on the blog I don't want to lose too! Great recipe. I added a Print/PDF button at the bottom of my blog (probably no one normally sees it because it's in the margin). I use it for myself to save it as a PDF to my computer and then print if I want to.
