"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..." See more 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 ..." See morecan 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."
