Butternut Squash Pie
Think of food in the autumn and anything with pumpkin seems to be the star of attention, but for me it is the Butternut squash! The Butternut squash pie has a very smooth and creamy consistency and the mix of spices make it really nice with a hint of almondy taste.
Originally from North America, a farmer in the Massachusetts created it by crossing two types of squashes. It is named Butternut because it is “smooth like butter, sweet as nut.”
Traditionally it is made as a soup or is roasted during Halloween and Thanksgiving. Although it is usually pumpkin pie with whipped cream that is served during thanksgiving, I personally find the Butternut squash a more flavorful filling for the pie.
Squashes can sometimes be one of the least favourite vegetables but with this recipe even children will ask for another slice!
