Better than grandma's! This recipe made 3 dozen 2 1/2" cookies with a cakelike/spongy center and slightly crispy edges. Perfect! The 2.5" cookies took about 13 minutes at 350 in my gas oven near sea level. The 3" cookies took closer to 15 minutes. I didn't have any walnuts, so I left them out. Still, really yummy. These cookies passed the "skeptical husband" taste test and made my whole house smell sooooo good. I think I used the Fuyu variety of persimmons: still firm when ripe and shaped like a squat tomato (no point on the bottom). I peeled them, diced them and pureed them well in a blender. I will definitely make these again if I can get my hands on more persimmons!
