It’s that time of year. What time you ask? Well, any of you that live with a gardener know exactly what I mean. It’s the zucchini overload! The hubby is bringing multiple zucchini in every day. I’ve made zucchini cakes, zucchini bread and zoodles. I’ve frozen zucchini and I’ve canned zucchini relish. There has been ratatouille and roasted zucchini. And I STILL had zucchini! So I decided to try making zucchini cookies. I started with the classic chocolate chip cookie base and added from there. What I  ended up with was a lovely little cookie cake that I will make again. I give you Pumpkin Spice Zucchini Cookies.

How Were the Pumpkin Spice Zucchini Cookies?

I really enjoyed them. Most of them went off with the hubby to a meeting. I am sure this does not surprise most of you. They actually got better on the second day. The spices really come through and I enjoyed that flavor in this cookie. The zucchini made them very moist. They are like little tea cakes. Of course if you are not a fan of pumpkin spice just add cinnamon!
