1/3 cup Vanilla soy milk
½ t vanilla extract
1/3 cup agave
¼ cup unbleached white flour
¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 t baking powder

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. For the cobbler, place all wet ingredients into a bowl and whisk for 1 minute. Slowly add the unbleached white flour, whole wheat pastry flour and the baking powder and mix until smooth, scraping the sides as needed, for about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until baking.

2. For the filling, place the two large, ripe fuju persimmons, peeled and cut into medium dice, into a large bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients to the fuju persimmons and fold together gently with a spoon to combine.
