Butternut Squash Pie

It’s fall ya’all! ‘Tis the season to make a delicious Butternut Squash Pie!!! (Who says it’s all about pumpkins anyway?)

Butternut Squash Pie

In my simple and humble opinion, butternut squash is highly underrated. Every fall the great and mighty pumpkin takes front and center stage in the recipe department. Now don’t get me wrong, I personally love all things pumpkin, but now I am also learning to love all things butternut squash too! Especially, this butternut squash pie! Mmm Mmm Good 🙂

If you are into gardening you will know that growing butternut squash is one of the sweetest winter squashes. Butternut squash and pumpkins are both very similar and both are considered to be in the “squash” family.

Okay, now let’s make a pie! 

Butternut Squash 3

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups butternut squash, cooked
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 4 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 single-crust pie pastry

Start by peeling and dicing a butternut squash. (You’ll need a total of 3 cups mashed cooked butternut squash for the pie so be sure to start with a nice size squash.) Place the diced squash into a large pan and cook it just like you would potatoes. When the squash is fully cooked it will be tender when poked with a fork. Place the squash into a strainer to drain the excess water. Place the squash into a mixing bowl and mash it until it becomes the right consistency (like cooked canned pumpkin consistency). Allow the squash to cool to room temperature.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, cornstarch, butter,vanilla, water and spices. Add the mashed squash to the mixture and combine well. Pour the mixture into a prepared pie crust and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 35 – 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool.

Refrigerate the pie (if you can wait that long, lol) until chilled and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream if desired. 

I’m always on the look out for great gift ideas and recently I stumbled upon this cute little Turkey Plate Holder.It’s a great way for guest to be able to serve themselves a piece of pie or other dessert.
