Zucchini Cookies

Summer is my absolute favorite time of year! Even when it’s 100 degrees outside….I still love Summer.

Among one of the many reasons, is the fresh produce. And when it’s grown in a local garden, even better! Last year, Doug had a wonderful garden at the farm where he is the landscape manager, and we had a HUGE amount of zucchini. This year, the zucchini have been few and far between, so we have been really enjoying them. Last week I baked some Zucchini Cookies. This was a new recipe for us, but we all enjoyed them. They were just a tad dry, so I think next time I will add a bit more zucchini or a couple tablespoons of milk. The flavor was really good though.

Use up the extra zucchini with these delicious cookies. Recipe from HoosierHomemade.com
  • ½ cup butter or margarine (I used Butter Flavor Crisco)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup zucchini, grated
  • 2 cups flour, all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup raisins
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add the egg
  3. Beat until well combined
  4. Add the zucchini
  5. Stir until combined
  6. Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves
  7. Stir in zucchini mixture
  8. Measure raisins and coat with a pinch of flour (it's my trick so that the raisins don't clump together or drop to the bottom of the cookie)
  9. Fold raisins into mixture
  10. Drop by teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

    You’re supposed to add water with the crisco according to the package directions, so that might be a cause of some of the lack of moisture. I believe it’s 6 teaspoons water per bar of crisco.

    I never knew that one was supposed to that until I received a cookie recipe that detailed that, so thought I’d pass the knowledge along. :)
