Wish there had been more specific meaasurements of persimmon pulp & banana--they both can vary widely in size. Also, drop by teaspoon or tablespoon for cooking. Other than that, pretty tasty.

The flavour is awesome! I don't know if perhaps I stirred too much, but the first batch of 12 cookies was very moist and rose sort of like a cake or loaf. So, I took the remaining batter and put it in a 8" cake pan and when it was done I cut it into squares, YUM! PS: I made a simple lemon icing (2tbs lemon juice and 1/2c icing sugar) and drizled it over both the cookies and cake, mmmmmmmmmm

I was very upset at the directions for this recipe. Example........when and what do you do with the Banana ? There are big persimmons and small persimmons . It should be measured by how many cups. I thought the final product was good but I was so upset ant the recipe instructions that the taste was just OK. Please have the chef bring this up to snuff.If he does I will make again and review it again
