The Joy of Baking - Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies



Catherine Mary recently asked me if I had a zucchini cookie recipe, and it happens that I do. These were a huge hit!

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini

4 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda

2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs, vanilla, and zucchini.
Mix dry ingredients and add.
Add chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonful on a greased cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
Makes about 75 cookies.

  1. Thank you for this recipe. I have some zucchinis left and in order to make the often baked "family zucchetti cake" I'll try these cookies. I'm sure they will taste fine.

  4. Hey Barbara, maybe you could post that cake recipe on your blog?!

    Catherine Mary, I hope you like them. It was a delight to make them for you.

    Cdn reader, thanks so much. The morning mist was just so beautiful. We don't get much mist except this time of year and I just love it.

  6. Those cookies sound great. Not sure I could get them past the family (what is that green stuff?) but I might try. Ha!

    Lovely new picture. Looks cool and fallish!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
