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.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
