Recipe #46 - Persimmon cookies

A friend of mine and I decided that we would try out a food co-op called Bountiful Baskets and split the basket because so much produce comes in one basket. The first week we tried it we received persimmons. I'd never heard of them and had no idea what to do with one. After a bit of searching I found a cookie recipe.

When I peeled them, they smelled lightly of pumpkin. The recipe calls for nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. The cookies have a nice autumnal flavor to them. They were easy to make and a big hit at work.

I don't know that I'd purposely by persimmons, but this was a fun experiment with a new produce item.
