Persimmon Sandwich Cookies

A while back I had the most magical persimmon cookie - it was made up of two soft, cakey cookies with a creamy filling sandwiched between them. I've looked ALL FREAKING OVER for a recipe, and can't find one. There were no raisins, no nuts, no nothing... just creamy persimmon-y goodness.

Any idea where I can find such a recipe?

  1. even i, the queen of Google, couldn't find anything! but if you have a god recipe for the cookie portion, you can probably make your own filling by pureeing cooked, mashed persimmon pulp, sweetening it with sugar (confectioner's would give you a thicker/stiffer but creamier consistency) & folding in some whipped heavy cream.

      Good call on the filling. Or I was thinking of a thicker ricotta filling, maybe with a little persimmon puree added in? What other cream fillings would compliment the lovely persimmon?

        funny you should mention ricotta - i was going to suggest mascarpone, but i wasn't sure how thick you wanted the filling.

        personally i love chocolate with persimmon. cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon & vanilla also pair beautifully with it, and as far as nuts go i think walnuts & hazelnuts are the best matches.

          That's funny because when I read your first post I thought mascarpone whipped cream frosting w/ pureed persimmons but didn't know if the OP would want mascarpone either. I think a cardamom jam thumbprint cookie w/ a presimmons filling would be good. Maybe a tiny drizzle of rum glaze over it.

            These are all great ideas. I smell a project coming on!
