I decided to try this pie with the over abundance of butternut squash we grew this summer. It was delicious!!




The recipe is for 2 pies. I will be covering this with fresh whipped cream to take to my Mom's for Thanksgiving..

Ingredients

2
baked, 9 inch pie crusts
2 1/2 c
pureed butternut squash
2 can(s)
(12 ounces each) carnation evaporated milk
1 tsp
salt
4
large eggs
1 1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp
ground cloves
1 1/2 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare 2 - 9 in. unbaked pie crusts and set aside.

Preheat oven to 425
2
In a small bowl, mix the spices with the sugar, set aside.
3
In a large bowl, beat eggs; add the squash and mix well, add the milk, stirring till well blended.

Add the spice mixture, whisk till thoroughly blended.
4
Now, it's ready to go into the pie crust. Pour even amounts into each pie crust.

Cover the edges of crust with foil; this helps to keep it from getting too brown.
5
Bake at 425 degree for 15 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350, an continue to bake another 45 to 50 minutes; or until wooden pick comes out clean.
6
Remove from oven and place on baking racks to cool.

When done cooling, store in the refrigerator.
7
If only making one pie, half the recipe.

I used 9 in. deep dish pie plates, only because I wanted to leave space on top to cover with fresh whipped cream.

I would recommend a regular 9 in. pie plate, if not using a topping.

Enjoy!
