Zucchini Crisp Recipe

"My husband, Jamie, is an avid gardener and hates to see any of his work go to waste," explains Deborah Trescott of Marianna, Florida. "So we fix this dessert that tastes like it's made with apples but uses up a bounty of zucchini. It's so good, even those who don't like vegetables enjoy it."
