"Tastes like an apple pie with a smooth texture! My husband LOVES this pie! He says the taste is somewhere between an apple and a pecan pie, but I think it tastes like apple. You may want to use less sugar depending on your taste. This is a great way to use all that zucchini from your garden! My family only likes zucchini bread once in a while, and my kids will only eat a few different veggies -- zucchini being one of them -- so I love discovering new ways to incorporate it into our meals and desserts.

My family loved this! The sweetness overtakes any flavor from the zucchini. The only disappointment is that it doesn't use very much zucchini. Garden growers tend to have a lot of zucchini. Overall, it was delicious. My kids and husband asked me to bake them another one. We also topped ours with vanilla ice cream. Yum!
I made this pie today following the recipe exactly. Unfortunately my husband and I thought it was the worst "pie" I'd ever made and I'm a great baker especially pies. There is no way we felt it had an inkling of apple pie taste. I'll stick to zucchini bread or a savory zucchini pie. Very disappointing overall and wouldn't waste my time with making this again.
This was absolutely delicious! I didn't think that zucchini sounded appetizing in a pie, but I was willing to try...and I'm glad I did. It definitely doesn't taste like zucchini. It's just like a custard pie with a sweet topping. It was also extremely easy to make. I will definitely make this again!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this pie! Everyone who has tasted this pie loved it! I have even passed out the recipe! So far I have made 5 pies with the only change being a little extra vanilla! ( I have had the recipe 2 weeks, lol) DO NOT doubt this recipe. DO NOT stick up your nose to the fact there is zucchini in it this recipe is AWESOME! :) Getting ready to go make another one now....
I made two of these, one with sugar and one with Splenda. They were both out of this world!!!!! Great recipe!!!
Loveeeeeeeee this pie!!! everyone who ate it loved it .. I added a little pumpkin to it as well.
amazing taste... great way to use zucchini would not say it taste like apple but has its own distinct taste and im sure to make again
