Here’s anther one, I know, but it’s a good one. My husband especially loved these zucchini whoopie pies. I found this recipe at Cook Woman Food. The cookie has a nice mixture of spices. You can really taste the nutmeg and cloves and the cinnamon helps round the whole thing out. Then you put cream cheese filling between two of the cookies. Delicious! You’ll love this as yet another great recipe to use up that zucchini. I used a cookie scoop to get them all nice and uniform.

  1. Wow, great idea! I've found that there are only so many flavors you can make into whoopie pies – they're a little tricky. Zucchini sounds perfect though!
