Butternut Squash Pie


My grandmother taught me how to make this recipe while I was a teenager working on her farm in the summers. For people that find the taste of pumpkin a little strong or just want a change this is a milder but still delicious pie. Hope you like it. Top with whipped cream!

2 pies


  • 2 prepared pie crusts

  • 2 ½ cups cooked butternut squash cubes

  • 5 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Press each pie crust into 2 pie plates.

  2. Blend butternut squash, eggs, brown sugar, milk, cream, flour, butter, cinnamon, salt, ginger, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cloves in a blender until smooth; pour into pie crusts.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until pies are set in the middle, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 2 cups milk for the 1 cup heavy whipping cream, if desired.

One squash will make 4 pies, usually.
