Mock Apple Pie


This apple pie is so creamy and yummy you'd never believe it didn't have an apple in it! That's right! This apple pie is made from zucchini's!  Plus it freezes well so you can make two and freeze one for later =)I'm happy to say we went through the last of the zucchini's before they went bad.  It's so nice having zucchini recipes on hand so I can use up those veggies!




Admittedly, I had forgotten to take a photo of the mock apple pie in the little freezer tin I had it in, until it was almost gone.  I heard my father in the kitchen and he was making himself one, so I took the presented opportunity to take a few photos before the redi whip began to disappear.  He made it look really nice, don'tcha think?



MOCK APPLE PIE:


Ingredients:

  • 6-8 cups zucchini (peel, cut lengthwise, remove seeds, slice about 1/4- inch thick)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 F degrees.
  • Cook zucchini slices in boiling water until tender.  You tell they are done by the translucent green color they take on.
  • Remove from stove and drain very well.  It's okay if a little liquid is left as that will become part of your sauce.
  • In a bowl, toss zucchini will all remaining ingredients.
  • Fill zucchini mixture in a nonstick coated 9-inch dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  • It can be served hot or cold
  • Put a dollop of whipped cream on top (optional but highly recommended =) )



And there we have it.  A simple, crustless, mock apple pie.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
