unbaked pie crusts
zucchini, thinly sliced
Yes, it tastes just like an apple pie...My husband and kids don't care for pie crust, so I used graham crackers for the bottom "crust" and oatmeal/cinnamon/brown sugar/melted butter combo sprinkled on the top(like an apple crisp). I sliced the zucchini with a mandolin slicer so it was paper thin, but I think I'll try regular slices next time, for more of an "apple wedge" kind of texture. I will also try to use smaller zucchini to avoid some of the seeds, but no one seemed to notice. I microwaved the zucchini for a few minutes and added it hot to the sugar/cinnamon mix. It does taste just like apple pie (or apple crisp) and I am looking forward to trying it with splenda to make it a little more diet friendly! Thanks for a great recipe Sonya!!
It doesn't say to peel the zucchini, so I didn't since I'm trying to learn to follow recipes and not to cupboard cook so much. Well, my mistake for not thinking clearly.
It does taste very good and it does need to be peeled for visual appeal.
Awesome pie that fooled my entire family into thinking it was apple! Great use of garden zucchini. I used larger ones, peeled them and scooped out most of the seeds first. My normal apple pie recipe also calls for 1 T. orange juice concentrate which I added to this pie. DELISH!
Great recipe. My husband forgot that it was zucchini pie and asked what kind of apples I used. Will make again as we always have lots of zucchini in our garden. Make sure to peel and seed the zucchini before slicing. I used all of a very large zucchini.
Just like Apple Pie! This was delicious and a great way to get rid of my extra zucchini. My husband hates zucchini. I made this and told him it was apple. He never knew the difference and LOVED it... he licked his plate! :-) Will make again!
This was really, really good! I had so much zucchini and was desperately seeking recipes to slip them into as my family was so sick of eating them. I stumbled across this recipe and thought it was worth a try. My whole family loved it. We ate it with some vanilla ice cream. Delicious!
very good it was different
This was fabulous. Don't forget to peel the sues and cut them to the same size you would apples. Don't slice them, chunk them for nicer consistency. Cooks up so the zukes are still firm but tender. Might put in 3/4 to 1 cup sugar instead of just 3/4 cup...
