I have been making this recipe for over 15 years,in fact I look forward every summer when the zucchini start growing so I can make this.It's a very good recipe and easy to make.Everyone that has tasted this always asks for the recipe.Everyone always thinks this is apple crisp.I can't believe only one person has reveiwed besides me.This has a rich buttery flavor,and apple (zucchini) with cinnamon goodness.You don't know what you are missing until you try this.
