dried persimmon (we think) recipes?

A few months ago, my husband and I were wandering through New York’s Chinatown when we saw people literally running down the street to buy something from a street vendor. Naturally we had to run and buy some of this mystery product as well. From a distance it looked rather like powdered sugar donuts, but it is actually a dried fruit. We described it to a friend from China and he said it sounded like dried persimmon.

And so the poor half-dozen or so putative dried persimmons have sat in our pantry for 90 days plus. They are carefully wrapped, and I expect they are still fine to cook. We cut some up and ate it raw and it was not earth shaking. I imagine we could cut and use it like any dried fruit in rice pudding, cookies, etc., but we are not really big sweet eaters, so if I am going to make something I would like it to be amazing. Anyone by chance have a great dried persimmon recipe? Nothing turns up in a search here.
