Today I feel a little bit better . . . heck I’m lying I still feel like someone ran over me with a semi. But, I decided I should get up sometime before noon. Armed with a recipe for Persimmon Cookies I found at a lovely blog called . I only changed the recipe a little bit, I’m allergic to walnuts so I didn’t add them and I don’t really care for raisins so I omitted them as well. I’m trying to bake cookies with stuff I already have at home, so that was another reason why I didn’t put in the raisin’s.
My mother is also doing the 25 days of cookies and instead of trying to figure out a recipe for herself as well, she came over!
These cookies go together really easily, especially if your persimmon’s are kind of soft (mine were almost bad). I learned in Japan about different persimmon’s (柿) and got to taste both kinds while I was there. One version needs to be soaked in alcohol before used because it is bitter eaten plain. The other kind is sweeter and eaten raw, that is the kind I used in these cookies.
