The holidays seem like the best time of the year to pull out cherished family recipes. In addition to my great grandma’s candied walnuts recipe my mom pulled out last week, she also passed her mom’s persimmon cookie recipe on to me – typos, butter stains, and all. I’m not exactly sure what my grandma meant by “add water and raisens” when she didn’t list water in the ingredients. Also, what kind of nuts, grandma?? And apparently the rest of the steps after you beat the eggs are just implied.
Since I can’t ask her, I’m imagining my grandma looking down at me, “If you can’t figure it out, you shouldn’t be making cookies.”
