Directions:

First you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with Parchment paper. Next you want to cream your butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Then add the egg, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into the butter mixture, gradually; mix well.

Stir in the zucchini. Fold in your walnuts (optional), and chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls with two (2) inches between each cookie-- onto the cookie sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Do not over-bake, or you will not enjoy your cookies.

Let stand to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then remove and place on wire racks to allow to cook completely. This recipe makes a lot but is easily halved to make 4 dozen instead of 8!

We make these for Christmas sometimes, and therefore make a lot to give away!

Apricot Pie

"Made with fresh apricots, a simple recipe."

 

Prep time: 25 min.; Cook time: 35 min, plus cool down time; Total time: 2 hours.

Ingredients:

★       2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

★       1 teaspoon salt

★       1 cup butter-flavored shortening

★       6 tablespoons water, or as needed

★       1 cup white sugar

★       1/4 cup all-purpose flour

★       1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

★       1 teaspoon lemon juice

★       5 cups fresh apricots, pitted and quartered (let me know if you need more apricots)

★       1 teaspoon sugar for sprinkling, or as desired     

Directions:

1.     Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

2.     Mix 2 1/2 cups of flour and the salt in a bowl; cut the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until the mixture is crumbly. Using a fork, mix in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough just holds together. Divide the dough in half and form each half into a ball. Working on a floured work surface, roll each ball out into a crust big enough for a 9-inch pie dish with an inch or so to spare. Carefully lift a crust, fold into quarters, position into pie dish, and unfold the crust. Set the other crust aside.

3.     Mix the sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined; stir in the lemon juice and apricots. Spoon the apricot filling over the pie crust in the dish, and top with the reserved crust. Crimp the edges of the crusts together with a fork, cut away the excess crust, and cut slits into the pie to allow steam to escape. Cover the edges of the pie crust with strips of aluminum foil to prevent burning.

Bake on center rack of the preheated oven until the pie is browned and the filling is bubbling and thickened, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool and sprinkle top with 1 teaspoon of sugar.
