Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies Recipe SixSistersStuff


Want to know how I know if a recipe is good or not?
When I make a recipe, I usually photograph it as soon as possible. My dinner recipes are usually photographed a couple of minutes before we are about to sit down for dinner. However, dessert recipes that are baked usually don’t photograph that well when they are fresh out of the oven. They need a little time to cool down and set up.

Well, on this particular day, these cookies weren’t ready to photograph before the sun went down, so I put them in a container and asked my family to please not eat them until I had photographed them. The next morning, I came downstairs to find that there were only 7 cookies left. 7 COOKIES. No one would fess up to the crime and there is no use crying over spilled milk, so I decided to make due with what I had left and try and get a good picture.

Well, as I was figuring out how to photograph them, I noticed that two cookies had BITES missing from them.

Only one person in our family has a mouth that small and she has recently learned how to climb up on our counter . . .

It’s a good thing that she’s cute . . . that’s all I have to say.

So, the picture that you see of these Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies consists of 7 cookies- the only 7 that remained. The two cookies in the back have little bites missing out of them. Oh, the secrets of food photography!

As soon as I was done photographing them, one of my older kids yelled, “Mom’s done photographing the cookies!” and just like that, all 7 of them were gone.

So, that’s how you know these cookies are amazing. You should make them. Immediately. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the great recipe! I am not good at baking and always end up with flat cookies but these turned out beautifully! Nice and tall the way I like them. I read the freezer comments - I am going to try freezing the dough so I can have a house smelling like warm chocolate next time we want these again, I'll let you know if that works out!
