A great alternative to the traditional apple pie. Grated courgettes are baked with a sweetened egg custard in a shortcrust pastry case.
My family loved this! The sweetness overtakes any flavor from the zucchini. The only disappointment is that it doesn't use very much zucchini. Garden growers tend to have a lot of zucchini. Overall, it was delicious. My kids and husband asked me to bake them another one. We also topped ours with vanilla ice cream. Yum! - 24 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
LOVE LOVE LOVE this pie! Everyone who has tasted this pie loved it! I have even passed out the recipe! So far I have made 5 pies with the only change being a little extra vanilla! ( I have had the recipe 2 weeks, lol) DO NOT doubt this recipe. DO NOT stick up your nose to the fact there is zucchini in it this recipe is AWESOME! Getting ready to go make another one now.... - 14 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was absolutely delicious! I didn't think that zucchini sounded appetizing in a pie, but I was willing to try...and I'm glad I did. It definitely doesn't taste like zucchini. It's just like a custard pie with a sweet topping. It was also extremely easy to make. I will definitely make this again! - 09 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
