Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies

photoPerfect for the summer season & made with fresh zucchini from our garden! They are waiting (along with a glass of milk) for my sweetheart. The smell of chocolate chip cookies reminds me of the children’s book “The Doorbell Rang”, by Pat Hutchins. If you haven’t read it, check it out of the library on a rainy day & read it to your kids (while cookies are baking in the oven, of course).

3/4 c. butter (room temp)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. grated zucchini
2 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
12 oz. chocolate chips

Cream together butter and sugar for about 3 minutes.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Stir in zucchini
Stir in dry ingredients
Stir in chocolate chips
Grease cookie sheet & drop by heaping teaspoonfuls.
Bake @ 350 for about 12 min. or until you can see a light brown on the edges.
Do not overbake!
