Fluffy Zucchini Cookies

Flipping through my grandma and mother’s recipes, most of them are written on a faded note card in cursive with nothing other than a name, ingredients and baking temp/time. Beyond the handful of recipes that I remember from my childhood, most of the time I have no idea what to expect. Like most of you, I have an abundance of zucchini in my garden during this time of year. I am always looking for something different than zucchini bread to use it up.

Making these cookies I was pleasantly surprised at their cake-y-ness (that’s a term, right?). They are like a fluffy spice cookie with nuts and raisins! You can’t taste the zucchini and really I chopped mine very fine since my man hate zucchini. Score a point for me for getting him to unknowingly eat a gourd!
