For the Zucchini Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:


For the Zucchini Cookies:

  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • Beat in the egg and zucchini, until just combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, one half at a time, mixing until just combined.
  • Cover the cookie dough and place it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a medium scoop scoop to portion out 2 TBS sized cookie balls, and place them onto the prepared cookie sheet, 2 inches apart from each other.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies spring back when touched.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • Spread the frosting evenly over the top of the cooled cookies.
