Zucchini Pie from Worcester

Suddenly there are a lot of shiny courgettes among the big leaves in my daughter’s English vegetable garden. That requires quick action, because they are not grown to throw away. Then I remember the church cookbook Seasoned with love (1990) that we once brought from Worcester Massachusetts. Congregation members of Greendale People’s Church had made their culinary successes available to raise money for a charity. Apparently they liked to cook given the exellent recipes. In between you will find helpful hints, such as how to ripen green pears: place 2 or 3 in a brown bag, loosly closed, and store at room temperature. Or how to remove gum from hair: rub a plain chocolate bar in hair – then wash.

Mrs Phyllis Steinberg proposes this Zucchini Pie. She recommends ready-made croissant dough. You can do that, but of course I have to  give my own recipe in this collection. Advantage: you can decide yourself how much butter you put into the dough.
