This recipe came from an e-mail recipe group several years ago and was attributed to a Randy Pollak. I don't know whether Randy posted the recipe or was its source (or both), but I'm very grateful for it.

This is a tasty recipe but the eggs are missing. They came out flat!

These were excellent. I subbed dried cranberries for raisins. Will definitely be making these again!

Easy and yummy! I sent these to a high-energy theatre practice where they were loved by kids and adults. Not too sweet, but very satisfying. I made them using 1 t of pumpkin pie spice (I didn't have any plain nutmeg) and 1 T lemon juice (I didn't have the extract). Also, when I "pulped" my persimmons (2), I got nearly one 1, but just added unsweetened applesauce to make up for the extra that I needed (hey, it's still pulp, right?) Thanks ccferne (and Randy)!
