I have made these cookies several times and they are EXCELLENT with chocolate chips. I also substituted half the butter with applesauce once and it seemed to make no difference. Very moist, almost cakelike in texture. Zucchini-haters devoured these!

Cake-like cookies. Followed the recipe to the T, good cookies, next time I think I'll add more zucchini & maybe increase the spices.

These cookies have a delicious spicy taste, and smell great while they're baking. Mine spread too much even after adding additional flour and refrigerating the dough, but next time I'll do a better job of squeezing the moisture out of the zucchini. I won't add the milk next time either.

The orange zest truly makes this recipe special. The kids love it.

GREAT cookies. I made them healthier by replacing half the butter with apple sauce, lowering the ammount of brown sugar, and using whole wheat flour. Taste great with chocolate chips/rasins, will definately make again!!!

Fantastic - cakelike, but that's exactly what I was looking for - I cut the sugar in half and added chocolate chips, they weren't runny at all (I didn't squeeze out the zucchini) & my household is gobbling them up!

These were good, a good way to use up extra zucchini. I used half applesauce and half butter. The dough was really thin, I left out the milk and added 1 cup oatmeal and a little more flour. They ended up not spreading as much as I thought. I recommend two teaspoons orange zest, the one teaspoon gets lost in the cookies.

They remind me of little zucchini breads. I didn't add anything but the cinnoman and zucchini too it and I thought they needed a little more cinnoman. Also, they were better cooked longer then 15 minutes..about 17. But still good.
