I've made this pie a few times now my friends and family love it! They could've never guessed what was in it it tastes a lot like pumpkin pie. I do cut the sugar back to 1 1/2cup and its still plenty sweet. I also add 1tsp of pumpkin pie spice to the mixture while its proccessing instead of the nutmeg. Read More

I really don't understand the great reviews on this pie. It is way too sweet and like the other reviews I have read it does take longer than an hour to bake. I don't think it resembles pumpkin pie at all! this is a custard pie. I would not recommend this recipe there are so many other great ways to use up that Zucchini without wasting all those other ingredients. Read More

WOW! I too have a household of zucchiniphobes! My family(& I) loved this recipe. I baked it a little longer as the knife never DID come out clean but took it out of the oven after 1.5 hrs to prevent the crust from burning. The pie set lovely as it cooled on the counter & though my family preferred to call it "Harvest Pie" rather that the "Z" word I am planning to make this again for Thanksgiving.. zucchini is very easy to grow & versatile in the kitchen. Bon Apetit! Read More

This was very good. I baked it for 1 hr and 10 minutes. There was enough filling for 2 pies. I don't know how you would fit this all in 1 9'' pie crust. Also I only had 1 1/2c of condensed milk so I used 1/2 c of whole milk and didn't notice a differerence. Thanks for another good zucchini recipe. Read More

The zucchini pie was very good and easy to make. The ingredients were things that you have on hand and didn't need to go to the store. Tastes like a custard pie. Read More
