Recipe: Squash Pie
This is one of two dishes that really make Thanksgiving for me -- the other is my approximation of my grandmother's summer savoury dressing. Squash pie is made in much the same way as pumpkin pie, but is much lighter in flavour.
Line a pie plate with pastry. Do not prick the bottoms or sides of the pie shell. Preheat oven to 425F.
- 2 cups buttercup or hubbard squash mashed
- 3/4 cup honey
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp salt
Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake in 425F oven for 15 min, then reduce heat to 350F and bake for a further 45 min. Pie is done when inserted knife is removed clean. Cool before serving.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
