Chewy Frosted Cucumber Cookies are classic tasting cookies made with 1 cup grated cucumber to add some healthy nutrients! It’s the perfect easy cookie recipe to make with kids to show them vegetables can be yummy! The cute cookies are soft and you will fall in love with the sugar frosting on top! Who knew baking with cucumbers could be so delicious!
Cucumbers aren’t just for making pickles with (although they are sure are yummy). You can also bake with cucumber, similar to how you’d use zucchini or pumpkin. All you have to do is remove the seeds and grate the cucumber to get a similar texture. I’ve been using cucumber in multiple baking recipes this Summer, like this Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread, and we’ve been loving it!
For this recipe I was inspired by Oatmeal Sugar Cookies that I used to love as a kid. This recipe uses no oatmeal, but it has the same chewy consistency, along with the sugar frosting. The cucumber is hardly tasted in this recipe, but slightly visible with beautiful green specks decorating the cookie here or there. After family and friends tell you they love the cookies then you can tell them they are made with cucumbers. They will be shocked, trust me, I do it all the time!
