makes 2 pies
- 4 lbs. Butternut squash, split in half and baked cut side down in micro or oven, then seeds and skin removed
- 2 prepared pie shells, Pillsbury is my fav!
- 1-14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 eggs
- 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp ginger
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla
Combine in a food processor or mixer, or with a stick blender, all the ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Pour into 2 prepared pie crusts. Bake 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean
So delicious and nutritious my friend Lisa Williams serves this as a vegetable with dinner!
