"Z" Apple Pie

Ah Yes, The Monster Zucchini! We all have one that hides from us don't we?

But that's just fine with me because I have the Best Recipe for those big boys AND IT IS YUMMY!!!

Peel and slice through the middle of the squash length wise. Remove seeds with a spoon. Slice to resemble apple slices. Cook slices in water until just tender. Drain and place in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain thoroughly. 

Mix all ingredients well and place into a 9 inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter.  

Top with top crust, vent. Bake at 400* for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

The first time I made this I didn't tell my family it was Zucchini, they totally thought it was real Apple Pie!
