How to Make Butternut Squash Pie with Praline Topping


  • 1Prepare your squash by peeling, removing seeds and cut in cubes.
    I put my in a 9 x 13 pan. Pour ½ cup melted butter over them. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix to coat.
    Bake at 400 until tender. 40-60 minutes
  • 2For the pie:
    Preheat oven to 350.
  • 3With a mixer or food processor, mix squash until mashed up. Add next 8 ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour in pie shell.
  • 4Cover crust edges with foil or pie crust shield. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until knife comes out clean when inserted. (Mine never did come out clean in the middle and it was fine. Just as long as it’s not jiggly like it’s not cooked.)
  • 5In the last 10 minutes of cooking, pull out pie and apply the topping. Mix the pecans and brown sugar and spread all over the top. Apply dabs of butter across the top and put back in the oven for 10 minutes. Check at 5 minutes to make sure topping doesn’t burn.
