Anna’s False Apple/Zucchini Pie

Fool your enemies, and amaze your friends!!!
Use Large overgrown zucchini* peeled, and sliced into quarters lengthwise , remove seeds and slice to resemble sliced apples. Makes a pie that tastes just like an apple pie, same consistency etc. Use of apple pie spices are what makes the difference.

  • Read this as HUGE, the zukes that have hidden on the plant until they look like a baseball bat! You would never think of using this big squash for anything, THIS is the one you want, trust me. ], The bigger, thicker, darker green and firmer they are the better for making this pie!;-)

Has anybody made this pie? I generally dislike when people post a comment before they make something, but I hope to remember to leave a zuke on the vine too long next year so I can try this out!! :)
