Mock Apple Pie

mock apple pie
Looks like apple pie, smells like apple pie, tastes like apple pie…
Need an excuse to use up that abundance of zucchini growing in your garden?  This is trickery at its best right here.  There are no apples in this pie at all, just zucchini.

My aunt made this faux apple pie with zucchini fresh from her garden while we were visiting recently.  I don’t like apple pie – not even fake apple pie – but my husband swore that this tasted just like the real deal.  And – get this! – my daughter even gobbled this right up.

You can get this  faux apple pie recipe on  Foodwhirl.

What do you think?  Would you give this a try?

  2. I have never heard of this, but I see how it could work. I am not an apple pie lover either, but I could try this for my husband!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one - people always look at me like I'm crazy when I say I don't like apple pie! :)

  3. I can't imagine it tastes like apple pie. Really? I wish I knew about this recipe when we were growing zucchini. I like zuchinni so I bet I'd love this one. Thanks so much!
