I never see persimmons for sale, and yet I saw them the other day and wondered what I could do with them. If they're still in the store, I know what I'll do with them!

I fell in love with persimmons after spending time in Israel. They ate them like apples there. Here each persimmon costs $2 a piece! This looks super Angie and I wish I could have it right now!

Adina 3/11/15 18:32

I discovered persimmons only a couple of years ago and I just love them, I am eating tones of them in winter. Their season has just started and I am so happy. I love this recipe, so original, I have never cooked persimmons, I have always just ate them raw. I have to try this.

I love baked fruit desserts like this! That streusel sounds wonderful!

Cheap Ethnic Eatz 3/11/15 22:01

I've never tried baked persimmons but I imagine it brings out all the sweet rich flavored. I enjoy baked fruits so this would be a nice change to try. I rarely do anything with persimmons, I need to change that. Thanks for the inspiration.

What an interesting dessert, I've had a persimmon before but not for a very long time., the streusel topping also looks rather interest.

Scott S. 5/11/15 03:51

This is a lovely recipe Angie. I always seem persimmons at this time of the year but I'm never sure what to do with them. Now I do!

Christine Ho 5/11/15 15:35

Persimmon is a scarce produce here. Once I see some, will surely grab some back home. Your baked persimmons are so intriguing, Angie.

Nadia's Healthy Kitchen 5/11/15 22:22

Looks absolutely delicious Angie :D I'm loving persimmons at the moment and eating loads of them! :D

Amy 6/11/15 01:43

these look so good. I just got some persimmons from my in-laws garden. can't wait to try this yummy treat!

Dawn Yucuis 6/11/15 04:09

I don't think I have ever seen persimmons sold where I live. But I think that this would be wonderful with pears or plums as you suggest. I have made a recipe similar to this using peaches. I love simple dessert such as this one. So yummy!

mjskit 6/11/15 04:50

Oh my it persimmon season already? A season I look forward to every year! This is a super fabulous way to enjoy such a glorious fruit! This is a must make! Thanks Angie!

Wow this is so creative. I would have never thought of making this myself. Such a healthier option.

Roz Corieri Paige 9/11/15 15:42

What a wonderful dessert for fall, Angie! We once had a persimmon tree and always enjoyed its fruit! So did our horses! I love streusel on just about any baked fruit!

Kiran @ 10/11/15 23:46

Looks mouthwatering and so delicious!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 12/11/15 15:48

We don't see permissions very often here but they are beautiful and delicious! What a wonderful way to serve them - a la baked apple with a luscious crumble topping that's healthy too.

Koko 13/11/15 19:40

I've only had persimmons a handful of times, and I love them. I have never had them baked before...sounds to die for!
