Margaret was a dear friend from Church, whom I was so glad to have gotten to know,before her passing...she brought this delicious crisp to our Church picnic and I could have sworn it was apple crisp... it so good...if you have an over abundance of zucchini...this is one recipe you will just have to try... in the past, if I didn't have enough zucchini, added some apples to make up the difference. It's great either way...I added the addition of nuts.

She would be so happy to know, I shared her recipe, for others to enjoy!

2Cool on rack. Make filling.

In a large saucepan, place zucchini, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook until tender. ( I slice my zucchini thin, so the cooking only take about 8 - 10 minutes, you don't want the filling mushy.)

3Once zucchini is tender add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of topping to thicken. Cook another minute or two, until thickened.
