Zucchini Cookies

I should have thought of this when I was posting about them!

1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 c grated zucchini
4 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
2 t. cinnamon
2 t. cloves
1 t. salt
1 c. nuts (I used pecans, but have also had these with walnuts)
1 c. raisins (you can cook them in a small amount of water to plump them. Grandma did. I don't usually.) We substituted choc chips last time and it was delicious. Or, do 1/2 raisins & 1/2 chips.

Cream together the butter, sugar, & eggs. Mix in the zucchini. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then mix them into the butter mixture gradually. Mix in nuts, raisins or choc. chips.

If you chill the dough the cookies will be a little more "moundy." If not, they will spread a little more. Scoop onto cookie sheet and bake at 375. (Sorry I don't have a time, but they should be slightly browned.)

If you want to frost them--and they are good either way--

2 T. milk
confectioners sugar
3 T. butter, slghtly browned
