    klincko's Note:

    This recipe is from Madeleine Kamman's book When French Women Cook. This is great as a summertime dessert with coffee. I have also made it in a square pan and cut it into bars for an appetizer. You could use a store bought pie crust, but the crust is actually quite easy to make. I usually bake the crust with the zucchini while I am mixing the custard to cut down on time.
