The Last Hurrah for Zucchini for this Summer.
Do you love cobblers and want to make one, but not the same old recipe? Well, here is one that you could fool anyone with. If you didn't tell your family that it is zucchini, they would think it was an apple cobbler. In fact someone told me once that I was lying when I told them it was made out of zucchini. I have been making this for son long that I don't remember who gave me the original recipe and I lost it and have been making it our of memory. But I wanted something more accurate to give you so I got this recipe from "allrecipes.com."
This is the last thing I made with my zucchinis for this summer. They say to save the best for last and that is what I did.
It's a little bit of work, but any good cobbler is and it's worth it. It makes a lot so you could invite at least 12 people, depending on the sizes you cut. The original recipe actually says it makes 25 servings, but my family likes bigger pieces.
My garden wasn't the best this year and I didn't get as many zucchinis as I usually do, so I only got to make this once. Every other year I make it at least twice along with a lot of other zucchini recipes I have. Some of which are in other hubs. I hope you get a chance to make this, you will be pleasantly surprised. Enjoy, Enjoy!!
