I am going to close up shop and only bake these delights from now on....Christmas, birthdays, Easter...all Zucchini Nut Bread Cookie Sandwiches all the time.
Seriously, I found these in a Martha Stewart magazine a while back. I clipped it out and added it to my recipe binder and it never saw the light of day again, until last Thursday.
At 10 am I realized I had to bring a baked good to my daughter's preschool carnival at 3 pm that day...gulp. Luckily, we didn't have anything else going on and I couldn't find a boxed mix in the pantry, although I tried. I was sure I had a spare cake mix in there for just this type of an emergency, but after spending 10 minutes tearing my kitchen apart it was not uncovered.
So, off to my recipe binder I dashed to see what I could make with what I had in the house. I always make my standard cupcakes, you see Denver is at 5,280 feet above sea level and that high of an altitude plays nasty tricks when you bake. So, I have a few standard recipes I have tweaked and know I can count on and I boringly always make those same ones.
This recipe literally fell out of the binder when I picked it up and her presentation looked so cute, I couldn't resist.
Here is the recipe for Zucchini Nut Bread Cookie Sandwiches from Martha Stewart.
They were easy and they are absolutely incredibly delicious...seriously.
I am so happy I decided to double the recipe so I could keep half at home! I used Martha's printables to dress up my own packaging for the batch that went to school. I printed the labels on full sheet sticker paper and just cut them out.
I wrapped the cookies up in parchment paper and tied the bundles with green and white bakers twine.I tried about 18 different ways to wrap these guys up and made a royal mess in the process, whoops, guess I just had to eat those messy guys myself.
Then I ripped some pieces from my roll of thin brown painter's paper (from Home Depot's painting department) to go under the labels.
The box is a random job that was $1 at the thrift store. I love having stuff like that around for emergencies!
Now, I love zucchini, but you can't even taste it in there with the cinnamon, brown sugar, toasted walnuts, and oats dancing in your mouth. I am dead serious, if I ever have to bring a dessert....like anywhere....I am bringing these!
