Zucchini Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

I know the time has passed for zucchini recipes… but I could not share this recipe with you. I know it is harvest time. I know all those gardeners and planters are reaping their rewards. I have seen so many people post pictures of great big zucchini’s that they have grown themselves in their gardens.
