Frosted Zucchini Cookies

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"Friends and family gladly share garden-fresh zucchini with me so I can make and give away many batches of these cookies. I keep shredded zucchini in the freezer so we can enjoy them in winter as well. A cream cheese frosting makes them especially delicious."
