There is a funny story associated with this recipe for Mock Dutch Apple Pie. My husband works some Saturdays each month and it so happened that he was working the day I made this. So when he came home it was sitting out because I had just got done taking the photos for this blog post.
He grabbed a fork and looking at me like a kid in a candy store said “Can I?” and I was like “yep photos are done” He dug right in, did I mention that I married a “pie guy”? He loves all types of pie, so for him this was an amazing special treat. but back to the story…
He took a bite… Smiled from ear to ear and said “okay I know it’s not apples… but WOW.. This is awesome!! and you can make it all the time” (so yeah, with that response this is going on the “have to make regularly” list (wink). I’m thinking it’s my “get out of trouble” dish if ya know what I mean. He’s such a good sport about trying new things, sometimes without the best results.
How I Made this Amazing Mock Dutch Apple Pie
I wanted to try something with chayote squash and what is better than a sweet treat to keep that amazing hubby of mine happy. I mixed up a batch of my Grandma’s Pie Crust
And a batch of this Mock Apple Pie Filling
I used this my tart pan like this one.
For the Crust
Grandma’s Pie Crust
For the Filling
Mock Apple Pie Filling
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
For the Topping
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 Tablespoons Low Carb Brown Sugar
1/2 cup THM Baking Blend
3 Tablespoons chopped nuts, optional, I typically use walnuts, almonds or pecans
Prepare Grandma’s Pie Crust and place in a 9″ greased pie plate or the one I have linked above.
Prepare the filling if you haven’t done so in advance.
To prepare the Topping:
Cream the butter and sweetener, add baking blend and mix until combined and crumbly, stir in nuts if using.
Pour filling into prepared crust, sprinkle butter pieces or shreds across the top of the filling.
Sprinkle topping mixture on top of the filling and Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
May your Trim and Healthy journey be as blessed as mine.
