Grandma Crane's Persimmon Cookies

Growing up my Grandma Crane made Persimmon Pudding and Cookies. I grew up with them, they were the best. My mom can make them, but even she agrees no one makes them better then Grandma. The picture above is my Grandma and Grandad. My Grandad recently passed away. I have fond memories of their house, and of them.We had a lot of family dinners there...and they lived close enough we could bike there. Grandma always had cookies in a jar on her table. We always knew where to find them. They hold a special place in my heart, and so do my Grandparents. So when my mom brought me a bag of frozen persimmon pulp, I decided to dedicate a blog post to my Grandma Crane and her persimmon cookies. I can't find persimmons anywhere around here, and if I did I do not have a thing to help make the pulp. So here ya go, my Grandma Cranes Persimmon cookies :-)

Grandma Crane's Persimmon Cookies
