Gluten-Free Persimmon Cookies
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Stick of Unsalted Butter
1 Organic Egg
1 Cup of Blended Persimmon Pulp (about 4-5 small persimmons)
1 1/4 Cup Gluten-Free Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp of All Spice
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup of Chocolate Chips (Optional)
Handful of Chopped Walnuts (Optional)
Optional Lemon Glaze: 2 Tbs Unsalted Butter melted and hot, Juice of half of a lemon and 3 Heaping Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar
Preheat your oven to 375. In a bowl mix brown sugar and room-temperature butter together until smooth. Add in the egg and the persimmon pulp and mix until it forms a smooth wet batter. Next, add in all of your dry ingredients and mix well until a thick batter is formed. Drop tablespoons of the batter onto a greased cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
Let them cool completely before tip-off—and enjoy!
