A woman brought this "apple" pie into work this morning. I had to have a taste. It is an excellent "apple" pie. LOL As good as any I have ever had. It is made with zucchini.
Zucchini Mock Apple Pie
1 pie crust, unbaked
5 c. sliced zucchini, peeled and remove seeds
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 c. real lemon juice
3/4 c. water
1 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
6 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
Bring to boil zucchini, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and water; simmer until soft. Pour into an unbaked pie shell; pat crumb topping over mock apples and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.
Edited to let you know I made it. You need to drain off the liquid after cooking the zukes. Then I would add the cinnamon. It baked for almost 45 minutes for it to be done. It was still quite good. Had it with vanilla ice cream.
