  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk oats, flour, toffee bits, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves together in a bowl.
  3. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy, 2 minutes. Beat in egg. Beat persimmon puree and vanilla into butter mixture.
  4. Mix flour mixture into persimmon mixture until dough is just moistened and no streaks of flour or oats remain. Drop spoonfuls of dough 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake cookies in the preheated oven until slightly browned on the edges, 8 to 12 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

These were tasty! Very soft and sweet. The persimmon flavor is very faint. My only complaint with this recipe is I ended up almost doubling the bake time. I have a very old gas oven so it could have to do with my antiquated kitchen equipment. Thanks for the recipe!

I made the recipe exactly as written, using fuyu variety persimmons fresh from my backyard. The texture of the cookies was good - soft, with a good chewiness added from the oats. But the flavor was just not what I was hoping for. It was a little on the salty side, and even with the toffee bits, they are not sweet enough for me (and my 3yo son spit it out and said it was yucky). I'm new to persimmons, so I don't have much recipe experience to compare to, but I couldn't taste the flavor of persimmon at all- just the spices (and salt) I added in. And that was disappointing for me, because I could achieve that with applesauce if I wanted to. Anyway, my search for a great persimmon cookie recipe continues, I suppose.
