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..

How to Make Butternut Squash Pie, By Cass

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!
