Soft Zucchini Spice Cookies

The original recipe is below but I didn't add cloves or ornage peel (because I didn't have any) and they turned out great. I was pleasently surprised that even the guys at our picnic liked these (maybe they didn't know about the zucchini).

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon grated orange peel

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar; add the egg and mix well. Combine dry ingredients; add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Stir in zucchini, nuts, raisins and orange peel. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies are set.
