Picture this: you’re strolling through the farmer’s market one sunny day, and you spot a pile of zucchinis. You’ve already made zucchini bread and zucchini noodles, so what could you possibly make with these versatile veggies next? How about a zucchini apple pie! “Wait,” you might be thinking, “zucchinis in a pie? That sounds crazy!” But trust me, it’s crazy delicious!

First, let’s start with our ingredients:
– 1 pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
– 2 cups of peeled and sliced apples
– 2 cups of peeled and sliced zucchini
– 1/2 cup of white sugar
– 1/2 cup of brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt
– 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
– 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon of butter

Now, let’s get started. First, preheat your oven to 375°F. Then, line a pie dish with your pie crust and set it aside. Next, in a large bowl, mix together your sliced apples and zucchini, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice, and flour.

Once everything is mixed together, pour it into your pie crust. Cut your tablespoon of butter into small pieces and sprinkle them throughout the pie. Now for the tricky part: cover your pie with another layer of pie crust, but make sure to cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape while baking.

Pop your pie in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and your kitchen is filled with the heavenly scent of baked apples and zucchini. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you!
