Great way to use up the bounty of your garden. These are great with a little powdered sugar icing or cream cheese frosting on them, also

These were tasty cookies! I might have decreased the amount of cloves due to personal taste, but very good the way they were. The other thing I might try next time is adding the zucchini to the wet ingredients after I have beaten everything else together. It seemed more difficult than it needed to be to add it at the end since the batter still seemed kind of crumbly and dry. I also noticed that as the batter sat (while baking the first batch), the flour "soaked up" the liquid and became more of a batter (good thing).

These were delicious. I added chocolate chips as another reviewer had suggested and thought it was fantastic. I used 1/2 c shortening and 1/2 c butter because that is all I had. Made for a flatter cookie, but still soft. Yum!
