Soft Zucchini Cookies

With so much zucchini out there, I thought I'd share some more of my sister's best zucchini recipes that are also becoming *my* best zucchini recipes too! I made these cookies last week and they were so moist and yummy, but I forgot to take pictures!

*update* According to my calculations, these cookies are 2 Weight Watchers points each, how great is that?

Soft Zucchini Cookies
  • 1/2 cup shortening (I used butter)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • optional (but who are we kidding?) 1-2 cups chocolate chips, 1 cup chopped nuts (I made mine without nuts)
Cream shortening with sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Spoon the batter onto greased cookie sheets and back at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
