Our garden is starting to take off, especially the zucchini plants. We have learned over the years that you only need 1 or 2 plants NOT 10 or 20. The joke use to be, "be sure you lock your car door at church or you will come out to it with a zucchini squash in the seat!" Anyway...I can only stand to eat boiled, steamed or fried squash for so many meals and then what do you do...I like zucchini bread but tonight I was in the mood for cookies. This recipe I found in 2002 on the website recipegoldmine. I love it and use it every year. So, enjoy!
