3.5 would have been my rating, and I opted for 4 instead of 3 because I don't want to discourage others from trying it. I liked the flavor, though it is mild and if I make it again I would try to jazz it up a little more, maybe with nuts, raisins and more spices. I found the dough to be thick, sticky and difficult to work with, so I may not make them again solely for that reason.


Easy enough but not much flavor. I couldn't take the persimmons at all.


We really enjoyed this mildly spicey way to use persimmons.
