Persimmon Cookies RecipeThe Request: "When I was little my grandmother made persimmon cookies and pudding, these were a family favorites. I am looking for a persimmon cookies recipe that has the persimmon pulp, raisins and spices.   She also made a persimmon pudding that she baked. All I remember was that she mixed the persimmon pudding and baked it the removed it from the over and put a sauce on top and baked it again. I have searched several different sites and can not find these recipes. Do you have anyone out there who may have the recipes?"
