1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 2 cookie sheets or line with parchment paper; set aside.

2. In large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

3. In another large bowl, cream together sugar, butter and egg until light and fluffy. Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Stir in zucchini, raisins and nuts.
