Zucchini Pie (aka Mock Apple Pie Recipe)

Sharing is caring!

If your garden is overrun with zucchini right now and you are looking for recipes to use this veggie up, try this Zucchini Pie recipe. You will fool EVERYONE with this pie because it tastes just like apple pie.

When I first saw this recipe on TikTok I was VERY skeptical. Nothing tastes like apple pie. But I am here to tell you that this recipe definitely has the look and feel of a delicious apple pie.

Zucchini is one of those veggies that can literally be turned into anything. You can make noodles, french fries, and more with them!

How to Make a Mock Apple Pie (Zucchini Pie)

For this recipe, you will need about 5 cups of chopped zucchini. The first thing to do is to peel the zucchini with a vegetable peeler. Then slice it in half and get all the seeds out of it. With what's left, chop and dice into cubes. One large zucchini or 3 small or 2 medium should be enough.

Once you chop all the zucchini, place it in a skillet and all the spices in the pan also.

You can use my pie crust recipe for a Double Crust Pastry or you can just use a store-bought crust.

Once the spices and sugars melt, transfer the mixture over to the pie crust. Don't add all the liquid or you will wind up with a runny pie. Save the liquid. Take the extra pie dough and pull it off into chunks and stir them into the liquid mixture.

Place them on top of the pie. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow it to rest for about 30 minutes to an hour before cutting into the pie.
