Spiced Persimmon Cookies

I hobbled together a couple recipes to come up with this one.

Spiced Persimmon Cookies

2 cups persimmon puree
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups raisins

Cream sugars and butter. Add egg and persimmon pulp.
Mix dry ingredients together; add to liquid mixture.
Stir in nuts and raisins.

Spoon onto greased or lined cookie sheets, flatten, and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Cool 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Makes 5-6 dozen, depending on size of cookies.
