    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Yum! I made this twice in 4 days for two different holiday parties. Both times very well received. I did not have a tart pan, so I made it as a pie. At one party, I was told: "I don't like pies & I love this"; "I don't like persimmons and I love this"; "Your pie was the highlight of my evening". It is basically an apple pie made with persimmons. Turned out great both times, I did make some modifications the second time: 1) more persimmons! The persimmons shrink more than the apples; the second time I made it, I doubled the persimmons. 2) Less sugar: it's pretty sweet. I reduced the sugar a bit in both the topping & the filling, perfect. 3) More ginger: I added ginger powder & cinnamon in the filling. I would use fresh ginger in the filling if I had it.
