These are yummy chocolate chip cookies, but I like to consider them healthy because whenever I add a vegetable in they immediately should be declared healthy.  Look ma, I’m eating my vegetables (wrapped up in brown sugar, butter and chocolate chips, but still..)!

In all honesty though, they’re a great way to add a little bit of vegetable to your regular cookie!

How to Ship Cookies

This year I plan on lots of baking for holiday presents to friends and family.  I have been looking for ways to ship baked goods the best way possible to prevent cookie breakage (and heart breakage).  

I found that if you use plastic pint containers (even better, just reuse your takeout pint containers after washing out) and layer each level with parchment paper, your cookies stay safe in the mail! I will be using this method for various sandwich pies and cookies during the holiday season. Delicious Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.
