Fabulous alternative (or addition) to pumpkin pie at a Thanksgiving dinner!
This was the first time I ever made anything with butternut squash. It was absolutely delicious!
This pie became the new holiday favorite this Thanksgiving. Some liked it warm, some cold, either way was great. Homemade pie crust makes it even better!
This was great! Everyone who I could convince to try it loved it :) I did think the topping was a little sweet (even without whipped topping). You could lessen the sugar if you wanted.
This is a really great recipe. I cut the fat and calories even further by using phyllo dough instead of pie crust. I layered five sheets (spray with cooking spray and then sprinkle with mixture of cinnamon/sugar) and laid them in a tart pan (with removable bottom) and another five sheets and laid them perpendicular to the first set. Then filled with the filling. Also, I made the filling two days ahead of time and refrigerated it and then assembled the pie at the last minute. A big hit at Thanksgiving. Awesome!
Yum! I don't typically like this type of dessert, but I loved this pie! The butternut squash in it is great, but when I'm low on time, I just substitute the same amount of canned pumpkin, and that comes out great, too. I'll be making it again this Thanksgiving!
