I found this recipe while going through an old box of recipes that I had forgotten about. It's a really good tasting pie.

This was fabulous. I made 4 because I has so much zucchini. I gave 3 away. Everyone raved! I got 12 out of 10 for the pie. I modified it by adding 6 cups zucchini and doing a streusel topping instead of a second pie crust. The streusel topping is 1/2 c. butter 3/4 c. four 3/4 c. rolled oats 1/2 c. br. sugar and 1 tbls cinnamon. Mix until crumbly. Follow baking instruction. Magnificent! I will make this again and again! Thanks for yet another wonderful zucchini recipe! Read More

This is difficult to rate...it tastes like apple pie but I wouldn't make it again. I'm happy that I made it once it was interesting and I would recommend it for that reason. Otherwise if I want to eat apple pie then I'll make it with apples. Nevertheless thank you for the experience! Read More

This tastes just like apple pie! I tried skipping cooking the zucchini as another rater mentioned but I will definitely cook them next time to get the texture right. I also used a crumb topping from another recipe and it turned out great. We'll be using this often since I have so many zucchini from my garden this year. And I'm guessing I can put the pie together and freeze it to bake later so I'll try that next. Thanks for a great recipe that uses a lot of zucchini! Read More

So awesome. It was kind of freaky sitting there eating a pie that I KNEW was zucchini but tasted just like apple pie! My four year old insisted that they "turned into apples.":) I used the crumb topping from an earlier review because I like apple pie with crumb top crust. Y-U-M-M-Y! Read More

Oh. My. Lord. Seriously unbelievable. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO TRY THIS RECIPE!!! Better than any apple pie or chocolate pie or berry pie I've ever had. Used French Pastry recipe for bottom crust and suggested crumble topping for top crust. Wow. Im still stunned by the result. Read More

1ST RECIPE I HAVE RATED - EVEN THO I HAVE TRIED OVER 100 "AR" RECIPES. USED 1CUP MINUS 2 TABLESPOONS SPLENDA INSTEAD OF SUGAR...ALSO USED 6-7 CUPS ZUCCHINI. ALL ELSE AS WRITTEN. USED HUSBAND (DIABETIC) GRAND-KIDS GREAT GRAND-KIDS NEIGHBORS AS TASTE TESTERS AND NONE KNEW IT WASN'T "REAL" APPLE PIE. NO ONE WAS MORE SURPRISED THAN I AT THE EXCELLENT FLAVOR. ADDED BONUS WAS HOW WELL IT HELD TOGETHER AND CUT INTO PIE PORTIONS WITHOUT BEING RUNNY OR FALLING APART. P.S..cut the zucchini long ways then slice (not cube) so the slices even LOOK like apple slices. Read More

This recipe is great. Yup just like apples. I didn't bother boiling the zucchini and it still came out great and saved a step. I did add a little extra flour as the first time I made it it was a little runny but it wasn't runny as soon as it cooled completely. I also added more zucchini for a fuller pie. An EXCELLENT way to use up zucchini Read More

I am not the world's best pie baker but even I managed to come up with something that tasted good with this recipe! I also love "forgiving" recipes and this one is.... I started the zucchini before I went to get the recipe and never seeded them - just peeled and sliced! Ha! It still worked great. I would cook more zucchini than you think you will need - they surely do cook down! What I thought was enough for 2 pies only did one. I used the frozen pie crusts. The top crust looked a little ragged since I had trouble getting it off the tin! (But then most of my dishes look ugly & taste great & this pie was no exception! ha ha!) We never told my motherinlaw what it was. She gave it rave reviews and thought she was eating apple pie. It tastes wonderful is easy enough for even non-pie bakers to make and is another way to use zucchini. (Our family loves zucchini all ways so every recipe is welcome.) Definitely worth your time to try it if anyone in your family likes apple pie! 5 out of 5 liked it here with only one comment from my son who preferred less cinnamon (I think I mis-read it tho - the amount is fine in here.) Have fun! Read More
