"Yummy! this IS ever better than pumpkin pie. Super creamy. The squash is easy to deal with if prebaked (halved, seeds scooped out, face down in a baking pan with a little water with a 1/2 inch of wat..." See moreer, covered in foil and baked for 1/2 hour at 350*) Then you can just scoop it out and you're ready to puree with the other ingredients."
"I microwaved a small butternut sq. for three minutes to make it easy to cut and easy to peal. No puncturing necessary, it won't blow up. I ground both my allspice and cloves in a crucible. I added all..." See more 5 of the spices to a room temperature beaten egg and let set 30 minutes to bloom/release the taste(Std. Minnonite trick for all recipes using spices and eggs). I substituted 1/3 cup each of the following sugars: white, brown and corn syrup (Std cowboy trick for richer taste). At 35 minutes I placed a shield over the edges. I used a crust calling for cold unsalted butter and ice water and cut 1" overhang with shears and folded under the edge and used my nuckle inside and two pinching fingers outside to form the edge. Squash/slide extra dough into center bottom to combat crust shrinkage. One guy at the Thanks Giving table ate three pieces and wanted more."
