    Another way to use up those extra zucchinis! Didn't have quite enough cinnamon so made up the difference with mixed spice. Yummy!  -  31 Mar 2014


    These were well-received by my husband and the rest of his police crew. I used half brown sugar and half white, plus half butter and half Crisco. I would cut the flour down a little since they were a touch dry. Definitely a cakey-cookie, like the consistency of a pumpkin cookie. Also, grated the zucchini instead of chopped. Thanks for the recipe.  -  29 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are delicious! I doubled the amount of chocolate and used chocolate chunks instead of the mini chips. My husband could not stop eating, and he avoids everything with zucchini  -  18 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
