Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend flour and salt. Add in the butter and mix until it resembles a coarse meal.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of ice water and blend until the dough begins to clump together, adding more ice water by the the teaspoonfuls if the dough is dry.
  3. While you're working the dough, continue to gather the dough into a ball. Once it is in a ball, flatten it into a disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  4. After an hour, take the dough out and roll it between two sheets of parchment paper until it is approximately 1/8 inch thick. Place it back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the sliced persimmon slices, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and the lemon peel in a medium bowl. Toss to blend.
  6. Spread the preserves over the crust, leaving a 1 inch border.
  7. Arrange your persimmon slices overlapping each other. Feel free to make your own design! Fold the crust border up and over to create the galette shape.
  8. Brush the crust with milk or egg wash. Sprinkle the crust edges and persimmon with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  9. Bake the galette for 20 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking until crust is golden, about 20 minutes longer.
  10. Let your galette stand for at least 10 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of ice cream!

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your cake pan - we used four disposable mini loaf pans but you can use a muffin pan, loaf pan or bundt pans - by brushing it with melted butter and lightly dusting it with flour. Make sure to shake out the excess.
  2. Pulse the granulated sugar and lemon zest in a blender until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, then gradually pour in the olive oil and milk. Pulse until it turns into a thin batter, about 30 seconds. Don't over blend or the cakes will be too puffy.
  3. Whisky 1 cup of flour, the baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Add to the blender in 2 batches, pulsing until combined. Stop to scrap the sides of the blender as needed.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan or pans. Bake until the cakes just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and spring back when lightly touch. This should be about 25 - 30 minutes for separate loaf or bundt pans or 20 - 25 minutes for a muffin pan.
  5. Once you remove them from the oven, let them cool for 10 minutes, then loosen the sides with a small knife and invert the cakes onto a rack. Quickly flip over and let cool for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by whisking confectioner's sugar, lemon juice and butter until smooth, adding more lemon juice if the mixture is too thick. Drizzle over the warm cakes and serve!

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.
