zucchini-nut bread cookie sandwiches with cream cheese filling

Fourteen sandwiches. Gone in one day.

Do yourself a favor and prepare a double batch.

Zucchini Bread Cookie Sandwiches

(From Martha Stewart)

1 cup flour

1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder


1 stick butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup grated zucchini

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup chopped walnuts


1/2 stick butter

1 cup powdered sugar

8 oz. cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Add dry ingredients to the wet and combine thouroughly. Finally add zucchini, oats, and walnuts. Stir to combine.

Place parchment paper or silicone baking mat on a baking sheet. Using a dough or ice cream scoop, scoop a tablespoon at a time. Bake for 17 minutes or until slightly golden. Slide parchment onto a wire rack and allow to fully cool before assembling sandwiches.

*Hint: Cookies will look slightly under-baked until fully cooled–try not to over bake them.

For filling, combine ingredients in a small bowl and beat until combine. Spread over flat side of one cookie and sandwich together with the remaining half. Repeat with all cookies.

    Still waiting on the butternut squash, but these look GREAT! Well, the cookies at least ;)

  2. I had some troubles, mine flattened out and became really thin, I also wasn’t quite sure when they were done so mine ended up a little chewy and fell apart

    • Aw bummer. I’m sorry to hear that, Holly. I’m not sure what the flattening could be attributed to, other than possibly overly softened butter or over mixing. If your next batch of cookies doesn’t puff I could suggest checking the exp. date of your baking powder, but these cookies are tricky in that they don’t look quite done when they are. Might try baking them less next time and see what happens; mine took 17 minutes exactly. I’m sorry that I’m not sure what happened! But I hope the dough tasted good :).

      Thanks for checking out my blog.
