"This is a spicy cookie that's Mmmm, Mmmm Good! It's hard to get fresh persimmons these days, but if you have them, this is a great recipe. It's an original handed down to me by old/ancient relatives, and over 170 years old. These cookies also freeze well. Have fun!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. Cream the sugar and shortening together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg, blending thoroughly. Mix in the persimmon pulp, raisin paste, and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookies sheets, and spread out slightly.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cookie top springs back when touched, 12 to 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

The cookies were great! My husband totally ate three before they cooled off. I changed the recipe just a little by putting 3 cups of flour instead of 4 cups and used raisins instead of the past...

This is a wonderful persimmon cookie recipe. Didn't change anything. Everyone loved them. Even my niece who does not like persimmons loved them!

This recipe definitely deserves all the good ratings! The only change I made was to swap raisins for white chocolate chips. The cookie flavor was very good, with just the right amount of sweet...
