Excellent recipe. I did add 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg. Every year when the persimmons get ripe I try to find the best recipe. Well, this year I think I have found the persimmon cookie treasure! Will definitely be making more!!
Wonderful cookies. I will definitely be making these again!!
I had lost my cookie recipe, then found this one. Very Happy with this recipe just how I remembered them.
