Ingredients

1

3
eggs
1
egg yolk
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp
pumpkin pie spices
1 tsp
vanilla extract, pure
1 c
pealed & steamed (or boiled) zucchini, smashed
3 Tbsp
melted butter

Step-By-Step

1Whisk eggs, egg yolk and both sugars in large bowl until blended.

2Stir in flour, then pumpkin pie spice and then vanilla blending fully before next addition.

3Stir in zucchini, butter and buttermilk. (for the zucchini: I peel, wash, slice and boil until soft. Then I remove and drain fully and put it in a blender until super smooth.)

4Pour mixture into crust and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cover edges with foil or shield and continue baking for 30 minutes. Remove shield or foil, bake for 15 minutes.

5Remove from oven and allow to rest/set on wire rack until completely cool.
