IMPORTANT: When I baked the cookies at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes, the bottoms browned and the center was raw. I found that 300 degrees F for 25 minutes was best. They don't spread, so you can pack more of them on a cookie sheet to make up for the extended baking time. The acidity of the pecans masked the persimmon flavor. I would make these with the raisins, but leave out the nuts.
