Butternut Squash Pie

This butternut squash pie is absolutely delicious. Thanksgiving and Christmas are especially great times to break out this pie with its hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Who are we kidding though, any time is a great time for pie!

I hated pumpkin pie as a kid, but as I grew up and my pallet developed into a semi-developed pallet, I began to appreciate pumpkin pie's moist texture and subtle spices.

My wife and I married four years ago and the first holidays I spent with her family I spent enjoying her Dad's assortment of pies he makes. There was one pie in particular I enjoyed and I thought it to be a pumpkin pie with some extra delicious flavor.

I soon came to find out that this was not a pumpkin pie, but a squash pie. Ever since it has been my favorite holiday pie. It is very similar to pumpkin pie with some extra sweetness. Hope you enjoy this pie this holiday season and any other time you would like!
