1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Pinch of nutmeg

1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries (optional)

PREPARATION

  • Wash persimmon, discard stem, puree in food processor until smooth (with or without skin - your preference.)
  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Sift flour, soda, spices together.
  • In a larger bowl, with electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until well mixed (about 2 minutes.)
  • Beat in egg, then fold in persimmon pulp.
  • Stir in flour mixture, making a soft dough.
  • Mix in walnuts and cranberries if using.
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 1–2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet/parchment paper.
  • Bake 15–20 minutes or until lightly brown, rotating baking sheet halfway through.

Cook's note: Make sure the Hachiya persimmon is ripe before using it in this recipe. Wait until it is custard-soft, with a jelly-like consistency.
