Gluten Free Persimmon Cookies

My grandmother always made wonderful Persimmon Cookies. She even had a Persimmon Bush in her backyard. All the wonderful memories that I have of the two of us baking and cooking together is so wrapped around my heart. I think my grandmother truly was the one who taught me how to cook. She was patient and caring… and ALWAYS put love into whatever meal she was making.

So while I made Persimmon Cookies, all I could think of was my grandmother.

Mangiare bene… (Good eating)
