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
