Persimmon Cookies

What's a persimmon, you ask? Looks sort of like a tomato. Known to the ancient Greeks as "fruit of the Gods". Fits in the berry family, surprisingly. Famous around autumn time. Makes a really tasty cookie.
Try Out This Recipe (fits in the pumpkin cookie family):
2 ripe persimmons, pureed
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease or line one baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt.
Cream the butter or margarine with the sugar. Beat in the egg and persimmons. Add the flour mixture and mix until combined, stir in the chopped nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
