These great-tasting cookies also have raisins and nuts! Pecans are really nice, but you can use whatever nut you like in these.

This was a soft delicious cookie. Made a few changes; pressed the moisture out of the shredded zucchini with paper towels added just a tad more flour and oats. Cookies remained high and very tender. Will definitely make again. Read More

Sorry but I didn't care for this one. These cookies had little to no flavor - something was missing. Also the cookies came out completely flat and had to be scraped off the cookie sheet. Read More
