1 9-inch pie


  • 2 ½ pounds hubbard squash - cut into chunks and seeds removed

  • ½ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 1 ½ teaspoons apple pie spice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, softened

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  2. Arrange squash on the lined baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven until skin is browned and flesh is tender, about 45 minutes; allow to cool before handling. Remove flesh from squash using a spoon.

  3. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Place 2 cups of squash in a food processor and process until smooth. Add brown sugar, eggs, cream, apple pie spice, salt, and butter; process until smooth.

  5. Pour squash mixture into pie crust. Bake until filling rises, about 1 hour.
