“I found a zucchini cookie recipe in the newspaper, made it for my wife and she ate three cookies before they had cooled. I decided to change some of the ingredients without changing her desire to eat them as fast as I can make them. This recipe has "it's a keeper" from all of my "taste test dummies" that have volunteered to try them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. P.s. my neighbors 3 year old son won't eat zucchini, but stuffs himself with these cookies.”
36 cookies
