My grandmother taught me how to make this recipe while I was a teenager working on her farm in the summers. For people that find the taste of pumpkin a little strong or just want a change this is a milder but still delicious pie. Hope you like it. Top with whipped cream!

  1. I made exactly as written. This is an easy and delicious pie. What could be easier than throwing all the ingredients into a blender and pouring into a pre baked pie shell? Amazing flavour with a light custard-like consistency...a keeper for sure. I sliced a squash and baked the halves faced down for an hour; - Read more ...
  2. I made this without a crust. It was made with spaghetti squash and acorn.
  3. I was looking for a creative way to use half of a roasted butternut squash when I came upon this recipe! I was a little skeptical and so was my hubby but the pie turned out excellent! It tastes very very similar to pumpkin pie. One note I thought I could 'blend' all of the - Read more ...
  4. I made it just like the recipe it was great. Would defineately make again. Next time I might cut the spices down a bit. But it had great flavor better than pumpkin.
  5. I followed this recipe to the letter, and it tasted wonderful! A great balance of the sweet and spices, with a smooth texture. A note, to cook the squash, I put it in the microwave for about 3-4 mins so it was easier to cut in half. I removed the seeds, then put on a - Read more ...

Any leftover butternut squash from meal time is made into pies or muffins the next day. This is a - Read more ...
  8. Followed the recipe to a tee. Came out great light and fluffy. We couldn't stop eating it.
  9. This is an awesome pie! I've made lots of different pumpkin pie recipes over the years and I may be bidding them adieu after trying this butternut squash pie. The nutty taste of the squash and adding more nutmeg and ginger than the typical pumpkin pie recipes make this a very distinctive and delicious pie. - Read more ...
