"A wonderful use for fall squash. If there is too much filling, surplus may be baked in custard cups set in pan of hot water. Do not bake together with the pie, because the steam from the water will make the pie soggy."

pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
Wow! This is a serious threat to the great pumpkin pie. Butternut squash is an incredible alternative to pumpkin. I think both are equal in taste, but it's always good to have a wide variety of foods in your diet, so this is a tasty way to get yet another vegetable into your digestive tract. It has to be good for you, but it tastes "naughty". Yum! I learned an important lesson after making this... so maybe you can keep this in mind when trying this recipe: The quantity of filling this recipe produced was way more than I could possibly fit into one 9-inch pastry crust. In fact, I had so much left over, I filled a second crust and still had a little extra that I poured down the kitchen sink. Now I have two pies in the refrigerator, one full pie and another one partially eaten. Next time I make this, if I only want one pie, then I will cut the ingredients in half. Maybe my pie crusts were more shallow and not as deep as Carol's. I used the Pillsbury 9-inch pie crusts. If you want to make only one pie but you have much more filling left over like I had, be prepared to have 2 pie crusts. If you do not have an extra pie crust, you could freeze the extra in a freezer bag to be used the next time you want to make one pie. It will be easier to make this pie next time if you already have the filling on reserve in the freezer.
Well, it tried to make it vegen by using hazelnut milk. I should have used Oat which is thicker, the hazelnut was like WATER!!!! Other than that it was fine. I don't know why everyone is like its the best they have ever had. What have they been eating, sand? Its good but not that good.
I was a little skeptical when I saw how watery the filling was. And like other reviewers, I had enough to make 2 pies. To my surprise, it solidified after baking and turned out ok. It tasted good but its texture was more like squash custard than anything. And yes, my squash custard tasted fine. Perhaps I didn't drain my squash long enough? I make this recipe again (I see squash vines in my backyard again) and will drain my cooked squash longer.
This was amazing. Make it!!!! The kids loved it, they thought they were having dessert with dinner. I used egg beaters and skim milk and nobody could tell it was low fat. I will make this again and again. It will definetly become a staple at my Thanksgiving Day dinner. I would cook it for maybe an extra 5 minutes though.
Good as the best pumpkin pie ever. I doubled the spices, added grd cloves. I would use slightly less milk as it is not as firm as i would like. Note - 3 cups squash equals about 2#. Used ready made pie crust from store.
My family loved this pie. I used brown sugar instead of white. I will make it again.
Excellent! I used 3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice instead of measuring individually, and lightly dusted the top with a little nutmeg. My family loved it! I didn't expect them to even try it because they refuse squash in every other form.
Have made this pie for quite a few years. We always have an abundance of squash so I make pies. They r not quite as strong as pumpkin and a little softer but soooo good. I use skim milk and frutose instead of sugar and skim rather than regular milk.
