      This was really tasty, though I did not make it as a "cookie." I made it as a crisp, minus the bottom crust, and served it in bowls with ice cream or half & half. My husband went nuts for it, and insists that I make another batch with the one remaining giant zucchini sitting in the kitchen. :) Making it as a dessert rather than bars reduced the amount of butter, sugar and flour (and calories), as well as simplified the process. I mixed 1/2 cup margarine, 1 1/3 cups flour and 1 cup sugar w/ a pastry cutter for the topping, added 1/2 cup to thicken the zucchini mixture as directed, and then added about 1/2 cup chopped walnuts along w/ the cinnamon to the portion remaining. I cooked the zucchini as directed (used about 9 cups, cooked in 1 cup lemon juice), except subbed 1/2 cup Splenda for half of the sugar. When thickened, I poured it into a 9 x 13 pan sprayed w/ Pam, added the topping, sprinkled it w/ more nutmeg, and baked @ 350 for an hour. Really tasty, and seemed to be better still the next day. Thanks for a great way to use those garden giants!!! lol

      Ummm good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made up a few batches and canned the filling and put flour mixture in freezer. Has been an easy and delicious dessert for when I need a dessert in a hurry. We enjoyed this recipe so much during the summer, decided to make it up for winter use also.

      It doesn't taste like apples, but it also doesn't taste like zucchini. It is a really good dessert. Use it as a crisp and don't forget the ice cream.
