¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Pinch of nutmeg
½ stick (4 tablespoon) butter
½ cup sugar

¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
¼ 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.
