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..

4Now, 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.

5Bake 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.

6Remove from oven and place on baking racks to cool.

When done cooling, store in the refrigerator.

7If 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!
