PRIZE-WINNING PERSIMMON PECAN SUPRISE

This is another Indiana persimmon recipe.

1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Combine the wafer crumbs and the pecans together well. Spread the mixture over the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch square dish or pan, reserving about 1/3 cup for later.

1 cup persimmon pulp
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Mix the pulp and powdered sugar together well and spread half of the mixture over the crumb layer.

1 cup marshmallow cream
2 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Combine the marshmallow cream, cream cheese, and powdered sugar together until mixed well. Spread the marshmallow cream mixture over the persimmon pulp mixture.

1 small jar of maraschino cherries

Drain cherries well on paper towels; coarsely chop. Sprinkle cherries over the marshmallow cream mixture, saving a tablespoonful to sprinkle on top as garnish.

Spread the remaining persimmon pulp mixture over the cherries.

1 small carton frozen whipped topping, thawed.

Spread the thawed whipped topping over the chopped cherries.

Sprinkle the remaining vanilla wafer-nut mixture over the top of the whipped topping. Sprinkle the reserved tablespoon of cherries over the top. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled before serving.
