Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
crust for a 1-crust 9-inch pie -- homemade or purchased
1 butternut squash -- about 2 pounds (2 cups mashed)
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 dash ground red pepper
2 large eggs -- lightly beaten
Sweetened whipped cream
Ground cinnamon

Prepare crust; place crust in a 9-inch deep-dish pieplate; trim and crimp edges. Cover and place in freezer while filling is being prepared.

Cut butternut squash in half lengthwise. Place squash halves, cut sides up, in a shallow baking dish or pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until squash is tender, basting frequently with butter. Let squash cool enough to handle.

Remove and discard squash seeds. Remove squash pulp, discarding shells. Mash pulp. Place 2 cups mashed pulp in a large bowl.

Add 1 cup whipping cream, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, ginger, allspice, red pepper, and the beaten eggs to mashed squash pulp; whisk until well blended. Pour mixture into prepared pastry shell.

Bake squash pie at 350° for 40 to 50 minutes, or until set in center. (Shield piecrust with strips of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary). Cool completely.

Garnish each serving with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream; sprinkle each dollop with cinnamon.

This sounds so good, I can't believe we haven't tried this before. I did try a recipe once for roasting butternut, then drizzling with a tiny bit of maple syrup.
Thanks for posting this.

Any old time Maryann. You know how much I enjoy it when I give somebody something

I sure do Billy, you put your whole heart into it, just like some other real nice people I know. It always amazes me when people can't find happiness and makes me want to scream, "just care a little more."

Ya know--all it takes is a little thank you for the time one gives---and Billy is a STAR!!!! I will have to see if I can find a butternut---sure sounds great---seein's we can't get pumpkin here--used to LOVE pumpkin pie with a "dollop" of whipped cream (or cool whip--can't get that here either---)
