Years ago I tried this recipe from the Taste of home magazine. The cook was Kathleen Cox.
The topping of vanilla wafers, brown sugar and butter just puts this over the top yummy.
It is so delicious it is a must have for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.
If you bring it for a dish for family get togethers you will bring back and empty dish.

How to Make Squash That Tastes Like Pumpkin Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Butternut squash is kind of tricky to work with. I prick it all over with a fork, and nuke it to get it soft enough to peel and seed, and dice. This can take as long as 8 minutes or so, turning the squash until it softens enough to work with.
  2. Peel, halve, scoop out the seeds and dice. Put in a glass bowl with a few tablespoons of water, cover and microwave unti squash is tender.
  3. Place squash in a large mixing bowl, and with an electric mixer, beat til smooth.
  4. Add milk, butter, eggs and vanilla, mix well.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients and add to the wet ones.
  6. Spray a 2 quart baking casserole dish with non stick spray, and pour squash mixture in.
  7. Cover and bake in a pre heated 350° oven for 45 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the topping ingredients until crumbly.
  9. Sprinkle over squash, and bake uncovered for 15 minutes or until heated through.
