We moved into a new house this summer, so we don’t have a garden this summer. Luckily some awesome neighbors supplied us with some garden fresh produce, including a few zucchini. Maybe most people only serve zucchini as a savory dish, but I love baking yummy treats with it. These zucchini cookies are a new favorite!

They are simple to make. The dough starts out fairly stiff, but then you stir in the zucchini and it works its magic. You end up with a soft and creamy batter.

I like to use a cookie scoop so that I get uniform sized cookies, but you can just use a tablespoon if you don’t have one. The dough is pretty sticky, so use a silpat liner or parchment paper, or grease your pan really well.

The cookies will puff up nice and pretty when you cook them. And aren’t those round tops just begging to be frosted?

If you think zucchini bread is tasty, you have got to give these cookies a try. The tangy cream cheese frosting makes them irresistible! In fact, my family couldn’t get enough of them. My boys practically inhaled them. But hey, they are full of zucchini, so I didn’t feel too guilty. 😉

    I just stored mine at room temperature and they were fine. But you can definitely store them in the refrigerator if you prefer.
