These are such good cookies!  A soft muffin-y cookie with a mild but delicious spice flavor!  A recipe that Mandi ran across and shared with me:)

•½ cups Butter, Room Temperature

•1 cup Granulated Sugar

•1 whole Egg Beaten

•1 teaspoon Vanilla

•1 cup Persimmon Pulp

•½ teaspoons Lemon Juice

•2 cups Flour

•1 teaspoon Baking Powder

•1 teaspoon Baking Soda

•1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

•½ teaspoons Ground Cloves

•½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg

•1 cup Chopped Walnuts

•1 cup Raisins Or Chopped Dates

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla. Mix persimmon pulp with lemon juice and add to mixture. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices, mixing well. Add dates and nuts and stir together. Drop onto a cookie sheet by heaping teaspoonfuls. Bake for 10- 15 minutes. Cover unbaked batter in the bowl with waxed paper so that it does not turn dark.
