Persimmon Cookies

This recipe has gone done through three generations and the extended family. As loved ones crossed over I gathered their recipe boxes and began to enter them in our family cookbook. I was amazed that the recipe was found in everyone's recipe box. It was definitely a favorite. You may even have it in yours. It was an old time favorite. Not sure who actually created the recipe but who ever you are out there in our wonderful world thank you. We love it!!!!!!
