Oh my goodness. 

I can't even begin to explain how delicious this recipe is! 

My amazing sister, Shannon made this for Christmas at my Mom's house this year, and I completely fell in love with the first bite! It reminds me of sweet potato pie, but much, much better.

Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Peel the butternut squash with a peeler and cube. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add squash and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.

In a bowl, combine 3 cups mashed butternut squash, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, salt, flour, eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter. Pour into a 9x13 glass baking dish.

  3. Oh my!! I am always looking for new recipes for butternut squash and I think I am going to have to try this. I think butternut squash is highly under used. In fact, I only use it to make butternut squash soup.

    Stopping by from the linkup, new follower.
