Persimmon Cookies

It’s persimmon season and I was lucky enough to get a bunch of them from a friend’s persimmon tree! Since I had more than I could eat, and some were overripe and ready, I decided to look for an easy and yummy cookie recipe. I headed straight to one of my very favorite food blogs: whiteonricecouple and this is the delicious recipe I used. So good.

These cookies have a soft and moist texture, almost cake like, but light and airy. Adding to the persimmon pulp, I threw in whatever dried fruits and nuts I had in the pantry. In this case they were dried cherries, prunes, apricots and almonds, and they worked just great. The recipe calls for raisins but you can seriously use anything. Happy Fall baking! 🙂

 

 

Roasted sweet potato, apple, bacon, onion and cheese galette

Nothing speaks Fall like sweet potatoes, bacon, apples and sweet onions. The smells coming from these roasted onions, apples and sweet potatoes are insanely good. Combine apple smoked bacon, smoked mozzarella, cheddar cheese, and egg custard to the mix, and you got one yummy rustic galette. #hungry
