These are wonderful cookies. I had lost my family recipe during a move and no one could tell this was not the genuine...I did have to watch the oven and bake a few minutes more...but that was probaly due to sea level....Try them you'll love them.

As suggested by another member, I used cranberries and pecans when I made this. Also, I got lazy and made bars instead of cookies. Baked for 35 minutes and topped with cream cheese frosting. Delicious!

Just discovered we had some persimmon trees in our yard and was looking for persimmon recipes. Decided to try this one. Wow! They're awesome! I made them a little bigger than it said and they're almost like little muffins but still soooo good. Very simple and easy to make and delicious. And the house smells great!
