Cinnamon & Honey Baked Persimmons

Lets just be honest. Shall we?

I have never liked OR known what to do with persimmons. They always call my name from the baskets of the farmers markets…so round and bright…so Fall-ish…

I finally decided to experiment with a few of these and love the results!

Upon first bite I thought “ew, no”…but after baking them with loads of honey and brown sugar they turned in to sweet little bites of happiness.

What you need:

Persimmons

1 8oz container of mascarpone cheese

honey

vanilla extract

brown sugar

cinnamon

 

How:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Slice persimmons in half

Smother them with honey, brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until soft

 

In a small mixing bowl, combine mascarpone cheese with 2 tbsp of vanilla extract and 2 tbsp of brown sugar…adjust if needed…this is really a preference thing…

Serve the warm persimmons over the sweet cheese! I added pomegranates for garnish…
