Gluten Free and Vegetarian Persimmon Cookies

Posted on

 

I was given some persimmons by a yoga student of mine was excited to find a variety of ways to use them. Some of the persimmons I diced and added to a salad while I used the others for baking. I combined a few cookie recipes to come up with a gluten free recipe that my husband and I enjoy! These cookies are great fresh and can be stored in an airtight container for a few days. They are best when fresh so make a small batch … or share with friends!
