This recipe comes from Martha Stewart…the photo is also hers.I don’t usually post someone’s recipes with out tweaking in to make it more to my liking first.

But I believe this is perfect just the way it is. Although if you see it posted again by me, I’ll have found a way to change it up a bit. This is just another way of using zucchini “ which I love “ !!!!!

How to Make Zucchini Nut Bread Cookie Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Beat 1 stick butter and the sugars until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  2. 2. Beat flour mixture into butter mixture. Mix in zucchini, oats, and walnuts. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. 3. Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop (about 2 tablespoons), drop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden, about 17 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
  4. 4. Beat together remaining 1/2 stick butter, the cream cheese, and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Spread 1 heaping tablespoon filling onto the flat side of 1 cookie, and sandwich with another cookie. Repeat with remaining filling and cookies.
