Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 2 small-medium zucchinis)
  • Frosting

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4-8 tablespoons milk
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, oats, and salt.
  • In a large bowl cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and zucchini and mix well. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until incorporated.
  • Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack or sheet of parchment or wax paper to finish cooling completely.
  • When cookies are cooled prepare frosting. Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. After melted, continue to stir over medium heat until butter turns amber-brown. Add butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk to a large bowl and mix until smooth. Spread onto cooled cookies. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
