Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

This recipe started out as a plain zucchini cookie. But over the years, I added nuts and chocolate chips. These soft cookies never make it to the cookie jar! —Tina Lunt, Bass Harbor, Maine

Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Place shredded zucchini on a clean towel; roll up and squeeze to remove excess liquid. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the zucchini, nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
