Zapple Crisp (Zucchini - faux apple!)

Remember when I gave you the recipe for a faux apple pie... tastes and looks like like apple but made with zucchini? Recipe here: Zapple Pie

With the huge amount of zucchini I had that year I made a lot of zapple pie filling and canned it. A couple weeks ago, on a cold, snowy Midwestern day I got the urge for a nice hot Apple Crisp. 

We only had 1 apple in the house (a Granny Smith) but I had a quart of zapple pie filling all ready to go! A quick Apple Crisp was soon baking away in the oven. 

1 quart zapple pie filling (just make the zapple pie filling - it doesn't have to be canned of course!)

1/2 c butter, melted 

1 c sugar 

1 c flour 

1 c oatmeal 


 Mix the butter, sugar, flour and oatmeal. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray (your choice of size, smaller pans equal thicker desserts. A larger pan equals a thinner dessert. I like an 8 or 9 inch square pan personally). Fill the baking dish with the zapple pie mixture. Top with the crumb topping. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes. Great served warm with vanilla ice cream.
