Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

I got this recipe from my cousin Angel, so thank you Angel!  It is an AWESOME cookie, and was a huge hit in our house!  It is very much a cake like cookie, so don't expect something like a traditional chocolate chip recipe.

As you see at the end of the recipe chocolate chips are an option to add if so desired.  I added 1cup of chocolate chips to the recipe and was very happy with the results. 

1/2 cup butter (room temp)
1/2 cup white sugar 
1/2 cup brown sugar 
1 egg 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
2 cups grated zucchini

Mix butter, egg, vanilla & sugars – then the baking soda and cocoa then the zucchini and finally the flour. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto baking sheet the bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.

Optional additions – a scant cup of chocolate chips in the batter or swipe of cream cheese frosting on top.
