Posted in : DESSERT on by : Admin

Super moist and perfectly sweetened zucchini cookies piled high with the most incredible brown butter cream cheese frosting you will ever taste!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini, squeezed slightly to remove some of the extra liquid
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I used fat free – may sub sour cream in a pinch)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4-6 tablespoons milk
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. In a medium-large bowl combine zucchini, greek yogurt, egg, sugars, and vanilla and mix well.
  • In another bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a baking sheet, at least 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
  • To make the frosting, melt butter in a medium sauce pan. When butter is melted, continue to whisk over medium heat until butter turns from yellow to a golden color. Remove from heat. In a medium bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth and spreadable. Spread on cooled cookies.
