Frosted Zucchini Cookies Recipe

Friends and family gladly share garden-fresh zucchini with me so I can make and give away many batches of these cookies. I keep shredded zucchini in the freezer so we can enjoy them in winter as well. A cream cheese frosting makes them especially delicious.

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, optional
1 cup finely shredded zucchini
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped walnuts



Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners’ sugar 

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg.
