Butternut Squash Pie

It's going to be a test for me. If successful, I'll submit the recipe.
Butternut squash is so plentiful and affordable this time of year, might as well, take advantage of it.

Has anyone ever baked a butternut squash pie before? How'd you like it?


Wish me luck!

I've made pumkin pie with butternut and fritters. It worked well, it's not as wet as other squash so it holds up nicely.
Butternut crisps are great too!

Butternut pie beats 'jack-o-lantern' pie any day--butternut cooks up without strings and it is not watery--no need to use the food processor or food mill, and no need to drain.

(Just don't tell my kids that it is butternut pie--they won't eat it. But what they don't know doesn't hurt them!)

My mom used to make squash pie all the time, she just called it "pumpkin" pie, nobody knew the difference. She could even get canned squash made by the same company that made the pumpkin (One Pie brand).

They are fab! Just peel and slice the butternut thinly and deep fry like crisps. Sprinkle with sea salt and eat alone or with hummus
I do it with beets, carrots, sweet potato and turnips too.

Ah, I remember. Crisp=chip. Gotcha. Yep, might just have to do that.

We call them chips, I thought Americans called them crisps
Chips, crisps, fries. I get confused.
We call fries and chips = chips. Crispy chips are Simba chips and french fries are slap chips.
