Instructions
Crust
  1. Set oven to 350F
  2. Put walnuts, coconut sugar, ginger and almond flour in food processor; process until everything is finely ground.
  3. Add the coconut oil, molasses and salt and process briefly to combine.
  4. Remove the mixture from the processor and transfer to a 9-inch pie plate. Pat the mixture into the bottom of the dish, and up the sides to form your crust. CRANBERRY GINGERSNAP PIE
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Then, set aside to cool.
Filling
  1. Combine the cranberries, 1 cup of the sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan.
  2. Set the heat to low and simmer the cranberries, uncovered, for about 15 minutes until they've popped and the mixture is quite thick.
  3. Remove from heat to let the mixture cool slightly and then puree in a Vitamix until completely smooth.
  4. In a saucepan, combine the puree with the eggs, yolks, salt, lemon juice and remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and whisk together.
  5. Set over medium heat to cook, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the spoon. This will take about 10 minutes or so.
  6. Push the curd through a mesh strainer, using the back of a spoon to get it all through.
  7. Let the curd cool for a few minutes and then add in the room temperature coconut oil, bit by bit, while you stir to melt it.
  8. Pour the curd into the pie crust and smooth out evenly. Then set in the fridge and chill until firm, about 2 hours or so.
Garnish
  1. Top off your pie with a sugared cranberry garnish. Just roll damp cranberries in organic cane sugar (or coconut sugar) and let dry. CRANBERRY GINGERSNAP PIE
  2. For a little extra fancy, accent the inner edges of the crust with slivered almonds, and pop a fresh sprig of mint in the center of your dish.

My first fall living in California, a friend gave me a bag of strangely shaped orange fruit, resembling a tomato. It was a persimmon, she explained, a fruit from Japan, but are now grown in California and other southwestern states. After the initial shock wore off that there was a fruit I didn't already know about, the next question was, what do you do with it? Turns out, lots. People use persimmons interchangeably with apples, so my first thought was, why not a persimmon crisp! Loaded with tart cranberries, this twist on apple crisp is refreshing and sweet.

Instructions
  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375º. Have ready a solid 10″ tart pan or single serving ramekins poised atop a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any wayward juices as the crisp bakes).
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the sliced persimmons, cranberries, sugar, lemon zest and juice, ginger and salt. Sprinkle the cornstarch over and fold until well-combined. Set aside.
  3. To make the topping, in a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Work the butter in with your fingertips or a pastry blender until the butter is blended in and the mixture begins to clump together.
  4. Scrape the fruit and juices into the tart or ramekins and spread evenly. Sprinkle the topping lightly over the top, squeezing it into almond-sized clumps. Don’t pack it down. Sprinkle a few pinches of flaky salt, and a teaspoon of coarse sugar, over the top of the crumble.
  5. Bake the crisp until the top is evenly golden and the fruit juices are bubbling thickly, 50-60 minutes. Let cool slightly, then serve warm, preferably with ice cream of some sort.

Not many people have ever heard of Indian Corn Pudding before, but if you're from New England or more specifically Rhode Island, there's a good chance you've stumbled upon it at grandma's house. This dessert dates back to the very first Thanksgiving with the mix of Puritan and Native American cultures. The Puritan's from England brought their love of puddings and mixed with the Native American's ground-corn puddings, Indian Corn Pudding was born. This savory treat is perfect with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and is best enjoyed warmed.

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and butter a 2-quart baking dish. In a large pot, warm milk over medium-high heat until hot but not boiling. Whisk in cornmeal, stirring constantly, until it bubbles. Then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  2. Stir in molasses, and whisk, cooking for 2 more minutes. Crack eggs into a medium bowl and lightly beat. Very slowly add 1/2 cup of hot cornmeal mixture to the eggs, whisking constantly. Pour tempered egg mixture into the pot, whisking constantly to keep the eggs from scrambling. Cook for 3 more minutes, then remove from the heat.
  3. Stir in vanilla, raisins, sugar and ginger. Pour mixture into prepared pan, then place in a larger baking dish or roasting pan. Transfer to the oven and carefully pour hot water into the larger dish until it comes halfway up the sides of the smaller baking dish.
  4. Bake until pudding has set, but still jiggles slightly in the center, for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream or ice cream.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove ready-made pie crust from the refrigerator. Once it has reached room temperate, lay one pie crust into a pie pan. Line the crust with tin foil and place pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes; remove foil and weights and bake until pale golden (about 5 minutes more).
  2. Toss sliced apples with sugars, tapioca, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the lemon juice. Gently fold in the apple butter. Transfer the apples to crust and press gently to make sure fruit is tightly packed.
  3. Roll out the remaining crust disk. Use a knife to cut strips 1 3/4 inches wide. Arrange strips in lattice pattern. Brush the top with 1 beaten egg with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  4. Place pie on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling thickly, about 1 hour and 15 minutes more. Let pie cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before cutting. Serve with whipped cream!
