Butternut Squash Pie has a similar flavor profile as pumpkin, and this pie uses many of the same spices. But you’ll love this slightly different flavor. It will definitely make your guests ask, “What’s in this?” Many people actually prefer butternut squash to pumpkin in blind taste tests because the consistency of squash is more even. You can make this pie ahead of time, and you’ll definitely want to blind-bake the crust for Butternut Squash Pie as you would for any pie with creamy filling. Blind baking ensures the bottom of the crust bakes through and doesn’t end up soggy, and keeps the crust from shrinking. Want more pie tips? Check out our blog.
