3.5 would have been my rating and I opted for 4 instead of 3 because I don't want to discourage others from trying it. I liked the flavor though it is mild and if I make it again I would try to jazz it up a little more maybe with nuts raisins and more spices. I found the dough to be thick sticky and difficult to work with so I may not make them again solely for that reason. Read More

Easy enough but not much flavor. I couldn't take the persimmons at all. Read More

This has a light persimmon taste and smells wonderful. After baking them I wanted a stronger taste so I cooked up a persimmon until soft and then pureed it with some powdered sugar and added this as a drizzle I do think it needs something to give it some texture. next time I will add some almonds or walnuts Read More
