Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for pie, substituting squash for pumpkin?

RE: LOOKING for: squash pie

If you are talking about substituting butternut or acorn squash of the pumpkin, you can use any recipe for a pumpkin pie that you like. If you are cooking the squash yourself, just make sure that you mash it up real well or puree it in a blender or food processor.

A lot of folks like the recipe on the back of the Libby's canned pumpkin. But your pie made from freshly cooked squash is going to taste way better than canned pumpkin! I would use 2 cups of your cooked and pureed squash. One ounce is not going to make a whole lot of difference.

This is the traditional holiday pumpkin pie. This classic recipe has been on LIBBY'S® Pumpkin labels since 1950. This pie is easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy. Just mix, pour, bake for a delicious homemade tradition.
