I never made this recipe, my grandmother use to make it. She made them kind of like a biscuit one time and kind of like a pancake another time...

She told me that this was an old recipe that her parents learned from Native Americans.

This recipe comes out two ways (unless you make adjustments)
1. Depending on the moisture of the squash, it comes out like a dough that can be formed into patties.
2 Depending on the moisture of the squash, it comes out like more of a batter like making pancakes...

Try it both ways, and adjust the recipe to your liking.
