    cookiedog's Note:

    After making 3 different types of persimmon cookies today, these were clearly the favorites. Katherine Hakins Armstrong won the Indianapolis Star's 2005 Holiday Cookie Contest with this recipe. I used a mixture of chopped dates, dried apricots, and raisins, as I did not have enough raisins to make 1 cup. You may want to reduce the oven temperature as I found my cookies darkened too quickly at 375. I would also suggest using a lightly greased cookie sheet. Recipe listed is the original recipe.

      This is the second year I have used this recipe. I substituted butter for the shortening, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I used my Cuisinart and used the butter out of the refrigerater. My son was a Chef in a nice restaurant last year. After the Executive Chef had my cookies, he added them to the menu last winter. EXCELLENT Cookies!!!

      My first time baking persimmon cookies. My go-to recipes have been puddings and bread to use up persimmons. Now I'm hooked on these lovely cookies! I followed the recipe exactly - cannot think of anything I would change.

      these cookies are delicious. but at 375 degrees for 15 minutes they burn. my first pan of cookies burnt after about 12 minutes at 375. i lowered the temp to 350 and cooked the rest for around 10 minutes and they came out fine.
