I made this pie, only because my cousin gave me a huge zucchini and I wanted to make something good. My Son and Grandson really enjoyed this and asked where I got the apples. When I told them it was made with zucchini, they couldn't believe it. This was one of the best "zucchini" things to make. They keep requesting it. You all will be amazed at how good it tastes.

How to Make Mock Apple Pie (Zucchini)

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and then cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Remove seeds by using a teaspoon to scrape them out. Cut the zucchini into slices ( it will look like apple slices) .
