    Added zucchini makes good soft biscuits, almost cakelike in texture. You can add chocolate chips if you want to make them a little more decadent!

    I have made these cookies several times and they are EXCELLENT with chocolate chips. I also substituted half the butter with applesauce once and it seemed to make no difference. Very moist, almost cakelike in texture. Zucchini-haters devoured these!  -  22 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These cookies have a delicious spicy taste, and smell great while they're baking. Mine spread too much even after adding additional flour and refrigerating the dough, but next time I'll do a better job of squeezing the moisture out of the zucchini. I won't add the milk next time either.  -  22 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The orange zest truly makes this recipe special. The kids love it.  -  31 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
