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: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
