Anytime I can sneak some fruit or vegetables into a baked good, I’m pretty happy.  Come on, every serving counts, right?  Cupcakes, scones, tortes, tarts, cocktails you name it, if I can squeeze in a fruit or veggie to make myself feel better about my addiction, I will do it.  You know I’ve been making a lot of baked goods with zucchini this year and when I saw this recipe for “Vegged-up Oatmeal Cookies” in a food magazine, I couldn’t wait to give them a try.  I happen to love oatmeal as a hot morning cereal or as an addition to baked goods.  Also, I had just made my Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting and had leftover frosting that i could not bear to throw out, and it was the perfect frosting to sandwich between two of these cookies.

I was slightly concerned when I removed these cookies from the oven.  They appeared a bit dark and the edges felt crispy.  But they were not overdone as I had feared.  They were the very desirable combination of crispy edges with chewy, soft centers.  Also, after I sandwiched the cookies with the frosting, I refrigerated them overnight and the chilling really enhanced the texture.
