Butternut Squash Pie

If I get the chance to choose what we have for dessert I will always choose a pie over pretty much everything else. I adore pies of all kinds, sweet and savory, and this one is a regular around my house.

I have eaten squash all my life, mostly fried or in a casserole, but put it in a pie and it’s just a little slice of Heaven on a plate. You would never think this pie had squash in it as it will also remind you of a pumpkin pie. It’s always a request during the holidays, but when I see butternut squash on sale I make sure to pick some up so I can make this pie.
