Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar with a wooden spoon until pale and fluffy. Stir in vanilla, lemon zest, and salt. Add flour and cornmeal and mix until mixture is crumbly. Add zucchini and stir until a thick dough forms.

  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until cookies are light golden brown at edges, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool completely on wire racks.

These cookies turned out great and were a big hit at the party I brought them to. I followed other commenters' tips of making sure to use course salt, which I think is definitely the right thing to do. The only thing was that these cookies were flatter and thinner than the pictures, and less rounded at the edges.

These are mmmmmmmmm good. They are addictive and the salt really pops. They're crunchy outside and soft inside. Highly recommended recipe!

These are delicious! I'm not sure if grating the zucchini so finely made it juicier, but I squeezed as much moisture out as I could after grating, and the texture of the finished cookies was great. The flecks of salt are so tasty. I highly recommend giving these a try!
