ripe persimmons, pureed
Very good recipe! I made this recipe last night for dance class potluck and everyone devoured them so...I made them again today. Substitutions made: add 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp lemon extract, used only 1/2c. nuts (pecans) instead. *NOTE* Persimmons are not always available year-round so I like to buy lots, puree them and freeze - 2 persimmons equals about 1c. puree. Doing this will allow you to make yummy, comforting persimmon desserts all year long! OH YEAH...first time I made with half splenda/half sugar and it was fine. Non-diabetics enjoyed w/o noticing diff. - many even begged for recipe!
I tried baking these cookies & it was a disaster. They never would harden. I have a convection oven & made the proper adjustment as I always do. I even baked them a little longer because they just wouldn't harden. They were extremely chewy, almost too moisty & didn't hold together well. Then, in just one day they turned black. What a waster of persimmons! If anyone can give me any input I would really appreciate it - as I have plenty more persimmons but don't want to waste them on this recipe. I only gave this recipe one star because I couldn't figure out how to give it no star at all.
Being a persimmon newcomer, (I was given a bag of them from a friend) I tried to find things to do with them. The persimmon pie recipe on this site is a disaster. But these cookies... Wow! They taste like autumn wrapped up in a little morsel. They are light and cakey, and just sweet enough. This one is a keeper.
Oooooh soooo yummy! I just made these and the last batch isn't even out of the oven yet and the first two batches are almost gone (there is only 4 of us). This is the first time I'd ever tasted let alone made persimmon cookies and I will be making them again. Expect a pumpkin pie like taste and you will be delightfully surprised!
Just a note I had to add a little water to the persimmons to get them to puree in the blender, about a 1/4 cup or so of it. Didn't ruin the texture at all.
If you like persimmon cookies you will love this recipe. Very delicious.
I thought these cookies were just okay. Not was I was looking for--not that it stopped us from eating them! They are a cake-like cookie and have a nice spice taste in the mouth. If I try them again, I might tweak the recipe a bit with 1/2 brown sugar, some vanilla flavoring
and maybe the addition of some oatmeal or dates. I felt they needed something to make them really good.
Not liking persimmon myself, I can't really give my personal oppinion. But I made these cookies at my husband's request and he says that they are absolutely fabulous! What I can say is that they were very easy to put together and I baked them exactly per the instructions. Happy baking:)
Add these cookies to a autumn day in the Central Valley of California, a pot of hot tea and friends...You'll not only have friends asking for the recipe...You'll have a great day to remember!
