Lemon Zucchini Cookies


Hello from Nashville!  My parents and I are on a little family vacay {minus my bro and hubster}.  We are having so much fun!  I wanted to drop in to say HI and share an amazing recipe! These Lemon Zucchini Cookies have a cake like texture, and are just the right amount of sweetness.  I followed the {recipe} from Taste of home closely. 

Enjoy! :)

Zucchini Lemon Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup peeled & finely grated zucchini
1 tsp lemon zest
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 - 4 tbsp lemon juice


Directions:

1.   Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

2.  Add in egg, zucchini, and lemon zest.  

3.  In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

4. Slowly add the the flour mixture to the zucchini mixture.  Stir in the cranberries and pecans. 

5.  Spray baking sheet with bakers joy and bake for 8-10 minutes.

6.  Make the lemon glaze by combing the confectioners sugar and lemon juice {I ended up adding an addition TBSP of lemon juice to get the right consistency}.  Drizzle the glaze over cookies.


These cookies will not disappoint you!  Now we are off to enjoy try a breakfast place Martha Stewart suggested. Bring on the biscuits baby!
