YELLOW ZUCCHINI PIE my KLONDIKE GOLD PIE !

Nancy J. Patrykus

I received five yellow zucchini, fresh from my sons garden.
I wanted to cook something different with this beautiful zucchini, other than fried or soups etc.
So after tickling my ole brain cells, I thought why not a sweet summer pie! After shredding the zucchini, it reminded me of panning for gold! YES! you can eat the tender skin.
Whoopee! Another brain storm!
I think I hit GOLD!!!!
Naturally I had to name it my
KLONDIKE GOLD PIE. My sweet neighbor (home on sick leave)loved it. She had the whipped cream!
I think you might like it also.
Hugs, Nancy 7/31
