zucchini crisp

Recipe by

I was given this recipe about 25 years ago by a close friend who received it from her Mother-in-law. My friend died a few years after she gave it to me, well I couldn't believe this could taste good (I never ate zucchini) so for 20 years I never made it. I then came across the recipe and decided to try it, well, I thought it was apple pie and so does everyone who tries it. Everyone asks for the recipe even the men who eat it. This is one FABULOUS recipe you will love if you can just get yourself to try it. Don't be deceived it is easy to make and worth the effort.
