This Butternut Squash Pie is full of all of the fall flavors that you crave and makes a great substitute for pumpkin pie!
Butternut Squash Pie
I heard a rumor that canned “pumpkin” is really squash because it has a better texture. I can’t say if this is true or not, but this butternut squash pie tastes an awful lot like pumpkin pie in my opinion.
Anyways, we grew butternut squash for the first time this year and had to pick them before they were ripe because the squash bugs were killing the vines.
I let them ripen in the sun for a few weeks and then froze about 8 cups of puree and made this pie. It’s really good. I plan on making another one for Thanksgiving with my frozen puree. I hope you enjoy the recipe and happy baking friends!

Can you Substitute Canned Pumpkin for the Butternut Squash?
Yes! You can substitute pumpkin for the butternut squash in this recipe if you need too. The butternut squash is runnier than the pumpkin, so you may have to reduce the cooking time.
How to Make a Butternut Squash Pie:
Preheat oven to 450.
Combine eggs, sugar, salt and spices. Beat well.
Blend in squash puree, add milk and beat well.
