Persimmon bars as done by my husband's grandmother for years. A family holiday favorite. Sweet frosting tops these delicious cakes.

The bars are great: moist, chewy and good. Here are the changes I recommend: melted butter, not oil; using more persimmon, 3 ripe persimmons instead of 2 and/or adding some shredded Fuyu (the little crunchy ones). And less baking soda: 3/4 t. baking soda is enough. I also prefer a less spicy bar with only 1/2 t. cinnamon, 3/4 t. fresh grated nutmeg, and no cloves.

Great recipe! I followed one reviewer's suggestion of adding an extra persimmon, skipping the cloves and using butter instead of oil. (I made an additional modification and mixed in 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract with the beaten egg and sugar). The bars were super moist and tasty...almost like indulging in a delicious carrot cake. I topped mine with cream cheese frosting and they were FANTASTIC. Note: with my version, the bars weren't ready until 40-45 minutes (about twice as long as the original 20 minutes called out in the recipe)...still very much worth the wait !

Excellent! I went with melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp allspice, 1 tsp ginger. I used pecans and golden raisins, then topped w/ cream cheese frosting. Everyone loved them!
