Persimmon is perhaps fall's most underrated fruit. Besides being utterly delicious eaten as-is, persimmons bake beautifully into an array of treats — cookies being no exception. Browse our hand-picked collection of persimmon cookie recipes, each shared by the Allrecipes community. We've got classic drop cookies enriched with persimmon pulp and aromatic spices, as well as soft persimmon oatmeal cookies, persimmon chocolate chip cookies, and more. While hachiya persimmons are most often used for their juicy pulp, you can also puree ripe fuyu persimmons to get an equally delicious result.
