Kids Cook Monday - Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies
It's July and we are in the midst of our yearly Canada trip. For The Kids Cook Monday this week, it's time for a something yummy using one of our all-time favorite summer ingredients, the zucchini. And today, we are making zucchini-oatmeal cookies, à la Rachael Ray.
I found the recipe in my Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine and adapted it a wee bit for F&B. I'm thinking it might be really awesome with chocolate chips instead of raisins too.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz butter (1.5 sticks)
1 cup shredded zucchini
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup raisins
Combine butter and sugars till creamy, beat in the egg.
Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
Mix in oats, zucchini and raisins, let stand for 1/2 hour.
Drop into spoonfuls on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Yields: about 45 smaller cookies
