This is the perfect use for that zucchini you let get too big. Tastes just like apple pie. The guys at work didn't know the difference!!

I was so excited to try this and was going to make 2 - but that's a LOT of zucchini! Because it's really high priced right now just made one. I made a huge oops. When I lowered the temp and then reset my timer, I never got the stove off "temp" and INCREASED the oven. After awhile I went to check on it since the timer hadn't gone off - surely it's time. Well it was burnt. But let me tell you how good this pie is - even burnt it was great! It was mostly just the topping the crust edge that got black and I considered pulling the topping off, replacing and putting it back in, but no need. Wouldn't serve it to guests in it's present state but I will not hesitate to make this again. On a side note, though I'm not new to cooking with zucchini, it's the first time I ever peeled it. Apparently the juices from the veggie can have a reaction with your hands - the juices dry on your skin making your skin very tight - like you poured super glue on yourself. About as hard to get off too. In fact washing seems to only make it worse! Better by the next day and a google search showed it's not uncommon. So just a heads up not to be alarmed. It's not contact dermatitis or an allergy, it's just the nature of the veggie. Next time I'll wear gloves! And pay attention to the oven!!!

I agree that it tastes like apple pie. My teenage nephew refuses to eat vegetables but he was completely fooled by this pie.

Turned out great, no one could tell it wasn't apple. In fact they even look like granny smith apples if you do it right. This was a fun & great way to use up zucchini! THANKS!

We have tons of zucchini in our garden, so I thought I would give this a try. I omitted the cardamom, only because I didn't have any and I made my traditional "Betty Crocker Crust". I can't believe that it isn't apple pie! My husband was like, "how did you make the zucchini tastle like apples?" I love this recipe. and I can't wait to make it again! Thnanks for posting.

This is an awesome pie. I actually went to post it myself and found it here. Everyone loves it when they taste it, but I neglect to tell them it's zucchini beforehand. I've found that people arent as ambitious to try it if I tell them. Let them believe it's apple pie and then suprise them!! :)

This is the first pie I have ever made that was gone in a matter of hours. It really is that good! We cut a tiny sliver...just enough for each of the 4 of us to get one bite. DH said I had to take a piece to his Mom and Step Dad, so I took 2 to their house...and they ate every bite. She even requested the recipe...BIG compliment! Then he asked me to cut a nice size piece so several people at his office could sample one bite. I then cut one piece for each of the 4 of us for dessert, and it was GONE. My piece wasn't even big enough! I am making this again this weekend for my parents who are coming from AL. And I will make it EVERY year. I would buy zucchini in the store to make it year round! I topped with Oatmeal Crumb Topping for Pies instead of another pie crust. Thanks SOOOOO much for posting this one...it is FABULOUS!

Okay, I got some nice big zucchini from the garden to make this yummy, out of the world recipe. My boys ate theirs all gone. DH - who was skeptical at first - took a couple bites and said WOW! This is really good - I can't believe it's zucchini! I followed the recipe to the letter. What a great recipe. Thanks for sharing. :)

WOW!!! I did not make this, the neighbor did for a neighborhood block party, Let me tell you, DH who is an apple pie connoisseur. He ate some without knowing and thought it was incredible. When he found out it was from zucchini he looked at me and said get the recipe. I told him I already had it and planned to make it for dessert Monday. She served it with lowfat cool whip topping. Wonderfully cool and refreshing.
