In a mixing bowl cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 and a time beating until smooth. Add the flour and spice mixture to the egg mixture alternately with the pumpkin if you're using fresh ginger be sure it's finely grated and add at this point) stir to combine. Mix in the pecans and the raisins (drain raisins first), will blow the bourbon and the vanilla extract last.
