Grandma Darcy gave me this recipe many years ago. Since then we always have her squash pie on Thanksgiving instead of pumpkin, and like it much better!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (9 inch) pie crust pastry
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup cooked acorn squash
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate.
  2. 2 Beat evaporated milk, squash, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth; pour into pie crust.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until pie is set, about 30 minutes more.

  5. Great pie. I used Tromboncino squash and I like the pie better than pumpkin
  6. I think that I am the first reviewer! It's a long story however the bottom line is that my 11 year old grandson (who hates all vegetables) thought it would be cool to give his aunt (my daughter) an acorn squash as a birthday present. (Who knows how an 11 year old mind works??) I - Read more ...
