Genny's StoryWhen I was a little girl, my sweet Portuguese Grandmother used to make these moist and delicious cookies for my two brothers and me. We always looked forward to eating them, and it was such a special treat. To this day when I bake these cookies the wonderful aroma brings me right back to grandma's kitchen. Such fond memories that I will always treasure.

Just noticed the persimmon was omitted in the recipe instructions. Is it added to the sugar mixture before the dry ingredients?

Oops..sorry about that, Terri. The persimmon is added to the sugar mixture. Thank you for bring this oversight to my attention. Have a great day!
