A while back I posted about zucchini bread. Another thing that she did with the zucchini in our garden was make zucchini cookies! I thought they were normal when I was growing up, but truly, home was the only place I ever had them.
1/2 cup shortning
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat these ingredients until fluffy, then add:
3 cups grated zucchini
In a separate bowl, sift together
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
4 1/2 cups flour
Add to the other ingredients.Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Note: You can spread into greased cookie sheet and make bars. 2 cups oatmeal can be substituted for 1 cup flour, or you can grind the oatmeal in a food processor and replace cup for cup for flour. If you like you can add 1 cup nuts or 1 cup raisins for variety.
