I haven't made these yet, but they sound so good it won't be long.

These were good. I used my microplane and could barely taste the zucchini. The cookies are cake-like and very soft. The glaze made WAY too much so I ended up throwing a lot if it out. The cookies are good with and without the glaze. I skipped the raisins (don't like them in things) but I'm really glad I didn't skip the walnuts. Thanks for sharing! :)
