This is not my recipe...there was a Fifty State Cookoff (recipes from all 50 states). This is a real recipe of AR Persimmon Pudding; one thing our State is supposedly known for. AND NO, I have not made this can't find any persimmons around where I live. We also have "Hillary's Chocolate Chip Cookies" "Arkansas Razorbacks" and "Arkansas Sin" YES..these 3 are recipes too. Guess I should post them also. I have already shared them with a group I joined called USA State Recipes. P.S. This is also NOT my photo, it goes with the winning recipe.
