  • My neighbor, Shirley, stopped by today offering some zucchini cookies with raisins. THESE ARE GREAT! There has been a bumper crop of Zucchini lately here in Minnesota and I have been given a few recipes to use them up! This is the first.
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Directions - preheat oven to 375 degrees

    In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar till smooth.

    Add egg; beat well and then stir in zucchini; set aside.

    Combine the dry ingredients and spices (all but the raisins!) in a separate bowl.

    Add this to zucchini mixture and stir until thoroughly combine.

    Stir in raisins. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.

    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

    Cool on pans for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack - the cookies are very moist.

    These freeze well. If storing at room temp, put in tightly sealed container.

      These remind me of my mother in law's sad healthy cookies. She can never figure out why they don't get eaten.

      Try a healthy zucchini bread/muffin for something that tastes better.

      sorry to hear that! I don't publish stuff that people won't like. We ate them within a few hours of delivery. It has a lot to do with the texture of the cookie - these are meant to be moist - if they are not properly stored, they will of course not be good.
