Zucchini & Cheese Fritters

These didn’t hold together as well as I like. The original recipe didn’t call for letting the zucchini drain, but I suggest doing that first. I think mine was just too moist. Plus it was bland so I added Old Bay seasoning.

No Bake Pumpkin Cookies

Very Fall!  And I think it would be even better with butterscotch chips instead of white chocolate chips.
