Brown Sugar Zucchini Cookies

First off, thanks, thanks, thanks for all the kind comments about Announcement #1 and Announcement #2!

Like I said previously, we've had some serious changes in our household the last couple of months, so I appreciate still having some readers. Stick it out with me!

Half of this weekend was spent on the road visiting family, but Sunday we were back home and 7 loads of laundry greeted me when I walked in.

Never again will I let it get that backed up. Then the husband leaves for work this morning and destroys my neat, folded, clean pile. Ugh.

Besides laundry I did have time to throw some cookies in the oven, a variation of my brown sugar oatmeal cookies. This time I added some shredded zucchini so I could pretend I was eating a vegetable, and because it well, just needed to be used up.


Brown Sugar Zucchini Cookies
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 c. sugar (I replaced this with 1/2 c. agave nectar)
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. shredded zucchini
3 c. oats

Cream together brown sugar, agave nectar and butter. Add egg one at a time and then vanilla. Stir all other dry ingredients in, oats and zucchini being last. Cover and chill the dough at least 1 hr.

Roll small pieces of the dough into balls and place on baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 min. Allow to cool and then place on cooling rack.

And since Halloween is just around the corner, a pic of the little man with his very first pumpkin...
