Absolutely the best persimmon cookie I've ever had. Moist and delicious. I have two 5 year olds and a 6 year old who will usually eat only chocolate. However, I can't make enough of these at a time to keep up with them. They want them for breakfast even! Just great! Thanks!

This recipe has been in my family for over 70 years now. I love it and make it every year when the persimmons are ripe. We have our own tree just so I can make these cookie. I freeze in packets so I can have them all year long. Everyone I serve them to loves them. So glad someone else had the same recipe and was willing to share it with others.

Made with persimmons from the back yard, these cookies are awesome!! Taste kind of like a ginger snap, very yummy and soft. Might be good iced as well.
