- YButternut Squash Pie is a traditional dessert popular in the United States. It is often served any time of the year and is very similar in many ways to pumpkin pie. It is usually made as a large tart in an open pie shell without a top crust.
Butternut Squash Pie filling consists of:
Mashed butternut, milk, sugar and eggs, flavored with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Other possible ingredients include vanilla or lemon flavoring, maple syrup, molasses, and brown sugar. The baked custard filling may vary from a light and silky to dense, depending on the recipe’s ratio of mashed butternut, milk and eggs.
