Persimmon Cookies With Cream Cheese Icing

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nana K

This is a family favorite. The recipe comes from"Old Fashion Presimmon Recipes" by Bear Wallow Books from Nashville, IN. I have been making these cookies for years and my grown children complain that now they only get them at Christmas. The prep time does not include getting the pulp ready. I am only guessing at prep time.

No stars for me on this one after my first attempt. We really tried to make it work, but I think the proportion of flour to wet ingredients is off, with not enough flour for the ingredients. I checked other, similar recipes and attempted to add enough flour to make it hold together but doing this created a doughy and unappetizing cookie. I think it has potential to be a fantastic cookie, but was sorry it didn't work out for us!
