  1. Place squash in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and simmer over medium heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, and cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a blender or food processor, combine butternut squash, brown sugar, cornstarch, egg, milk, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. Process until smooth. Pour into the unbaked pie shell.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until a table knife comes out clean when inserted in the center.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
