In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press half of the crumb mixture into a greased 15x10 inch baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Set remaining crumb mixture aside.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring zucchini and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Drain. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/2 cup reserved crumb mixture. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Stir in walnuts and raisins. Spread filling evenly over crust. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Thank you! I was looking for one like this and didn't know it. :)
There aren't any apples in this recipe. Am I missing something, or is it that this is supposed to taste like apple pie?
It's not a mistake -- zucchini is used instead of the apples. You can't tell the difference. I make a Mock Apple Pie using zucchini instead of the apples. My husband was fooled and amazed when I told him that it wasn't apples in the pie. He hates zucchini but loved the pie. I use my regular apple pie recipe but precook the seeded zucchini. Most important thing to do is to make sure the zucchini is drained thoroughly. I add my spices to the zucchini and bake. Everyone that tastes this pie is surprised that apples are not used.
