Reviews for Persimmon Rice Pudding
"I went to the store and bought everything to make persimmon cookies. This was my first experience with persimmons. I didn't have any baking soda so I was fortunate I found this recipe. I'd bought buttermilk for my cookies so I used it. It came out great. Nest time I will add some of the spices and salt when I cook the rice. You can use pumpkin or apple spice mix as well. I only used 1 cup of sugar. It came out great and everyone wants the recipe. Imagine!"
