Apple Pie Squares

Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cup cold butter

Filling:

  • 8 cups sliced peeled zucchini
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions

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.

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.
