packed brown sugar

Just the taste I was looking for. I did not have shortening so I used 1/4 c veg oil and 1/4 c applesauce. I think the cloves is the key. Another recipe I used did not have it and I thought it was missing something.
Light, fluffy texture. Cakey, different, but flavorful; good way to use up that extra cup of grated zucchini. 15-16 min at 350 degrees worked for me.
When many of my friends and family are giving me a gift of squash from their garden, I'm always looking for a way to utilize the overabundance of the vegetable. This recipe was a perfect way to do just that. I enjoyed the cake-like texture, which reminded me of mini carrot cakes. As noted in the other reviews, the spice mixture was perfect. I may add a cinnamon glaze afterwards to complement the spices used in the cookie.
These are addictive! I left out nuts and rasins, subbed 1/2 the shortening for butter, and used ww flour..oh, and I added vanilla. My 1 yr old signed "more" for the first time ater a test bite of this cookie. I loved them , too! Thanks for a great recipe!
These cookies are wonderful. Easy to make. The spices are just right. This is a recipe to keep!
A friend had given me some zucchini a week or so ago. I grated and premeasured what I didn't use and froze in zip lock bags of 1 cup each. I used a bag of frozen zucchini for this recipe. It turned out AWESOME! Everything was according to the recipe. I used all the liquid that came out of the frozen zucchini. However, I did skip the raisins because I don't care for them in cookies. Thank you Maureen Pruitt for such an AWESOME recipe!
Excellent recipe. I omitted the raisins (nobody here really cares for them) and followed another reviewers suggestion and added a cream cheese frosting. My family loved them.
I made these to-day and doubled the recipe because I had frozen my grated zuccini in 2 cup packages *g*.
The cookies were quite good. I found them to be rather lacking in sugar, but that is probably me and my idea of cookies. Next time I will add extra sugar.
I added a cup of chopped dates because I had them here......
I will make these again, but add extra sugar and probably step up the spices by 1/4 more.
