My Grandma's Persimmon Cookies

My Step Dad just started back to school, and his classes are ending and asked for his Birthday if I would make cookies for him to take to the classes. He requested one of them be his Mom's Persimmon cookies, which a wonderfully simple recipe, I doubled it so he could have a stash in the freezer!!
1/2 c of shortening
1 c of sugar
(Blend these together with a mixer til creamed together)
1 1/2c persimmon pulp (about 4-5 persimmons)
1 egg beaten
(mix these 2 together and set aside)
2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
                                                                                    (mix together in a medium bowl and set aside)
Add alternating between the Dry ingredients and the Persimmon pulp mixture to the creamed mixture. Mixing well. Stir in 1 cup of raisins and 1 cup of Chopped Nuts.
Drop the dough by teaspoon fulls on parchment lined cookie sheets, then press down with a wet fork before baking. Bake for 15 minutes at 374 degrees til done. They should be lightly brown on the bottom. these do not spread much, basically stay the shape you put them on the pan. So you can fit quite a few on a single sheet pan based on the size of your cookies.
