Happy Holidays!

I really needed to use up all the persimmons that people have been donating to our household. So I made persimmon-apple sauce, and I canned it even using directions from the Ball Blue Book of canning.

Proof


Then I made Persimmon-Apple Sauce Cookies.

Persimmon-Apple Sauce Cookies

½ cup vegetable oil

1 cup persimmon-apple sauce

½ cup dark brown sugar (up to 1 cup if you prefer sweeter cookies)

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

2 cups flour

1 cup oats

1 cup flake coconut

1 TBSP cinamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

½ cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients (baking soda, flour, oats, coconut, cinnamon, ginger) in small bowl; set aside

Beat vegetable oil, persimmon-apple sauce, and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at time followed by vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients, once cup at a time. Add nuts last.

Bake ¼ cup or smaller size scoops for 10 minutes on baking sheet.

Great timing...I have about 8 cups of persimmon puree in the fridge I need to use up, also from gifted persimmons. I have a persimmon cake recipe, but that only uses a couple cups. I wonder if I could make a freezer jam using that recipe....I can't "really" can.

Just do a hot bath (submerged in boiling water 1/2 to 1 inch above top of jar) in a pot of water with rings and lids on your jars. You can pick up rings and lids at Safeway even. A jar rack is good for lowering the jars into hot water, but you can use tongs or something. Hot bath for 20 minutes. There should be no give on the lids if you're successful.

Thanks for the recipe for cookies - I have lots of persimmon - gift from Max's sister and I was just looking for cookie recipe since Christmas is almost there. Perfect timing! I am not great in baking but since we have David I make cookies every year for Christmas and they are always good!

These are not too sweet by the way. Eat them with hot chocolate (spiked with peppermint schnapps!).

Thanks for the suggestion to eat them with hot chocolate! We love hot chocolate in winter, it is freezing cold here, we had -2°C yesterday.
