Story Behind this Recipe

I based this recipe on a recipe for kabocha squash cookies. I avoided butter and eggs and instead used vegetable oil to highlight the taste and the color of the avocado. The result is a healthy cookie well-flavored with avocado. The pretty color, together with the melon bread shape, makes this a very charming treat.
