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.
