    No one knows that they are eating zucchini in this recipe....they think it is apples!!

    Zucchini Dessert Squares

    4 cups of all purpose flour
    2 cups of sugar
    tsp. of cinnamon
    tsp of salt
    1 cup of cold butter or margarine

    FILLING

    8-10 cups of cubed, peeled and seeded zucchini (4-5lbs)
    2/3 cup of lemon juice
    1cup of sugar
    1 tsp of cinnamon
    tsp of nutmeg

    In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon an salt. Cut in butter until crumbly; reserve 3 cups. Pat remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 13x9x2 baking pan
    Bake at 375 for 12 min.
    Meanwhile, for filling, place zucchini and lemon juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 6-8 minutes or until zucchini is crisp tender. Stir in sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. (Mixture will be thin)
    Spoon over crust put rest of topping on and bake 350 for 40-45 min.

    THANKS! Sounds Yum!

    Down in Chile apples are expensive as they don't grow here much. It's an import. But zucchini is weed like and almost free! Can't wait to try and see if hubby is BAMBOOZLED. ;)

    I made these last night and they are wonderful. And you are right if a person didn't know they would think it was apples, great way to use up all of the zucchini!
