I made these cookies on a whim to use up some produce that was nearing the end of its usable life. They are a spicy dark and flavorful cookie. We were all suprised when they turned out to be our favorite cookies recipe yet!! You can use whatever garden plenty that you have around: Pumpkin, squash, zucchini...

These were a big hit with my friends & family. They couldn't believe everything that was in them. And you don't feel guilty eating them. I will keep this one handy to help use up this summers bounty from the garden. Thank you very, very much for this delicious recipe.

Delicious! I've made these 4-5 times and while every time they come out different (sometimes bread-like, sometimes cookie-like). This is because I always just throw in however much of the produce that I want. I've never used raisins, or ground cloves for that matter, but they still taste great.
