It's so good, you'll stop making sweet potato pie forever.


3 cups butternut squash; mashed/cooked
1 cup Granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch Salt
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 Eggs
1/4 cup Margarine; melted
8 oz vanilla wafers; crushed
1/2 cup Margarine; melted
1 cup Brown sugar

Original recipe makes 15 Servings



Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

If you want to start with a raw squash, microwave it for a few minutes and then cut it in half and scoop it out. Cut it up and boil for about 15 minutes. Drain, peel, and mash. (Using a cheese slicer works great for peeling safely!) Otherwise, you can use pre-prepared squash.

In a 9x13 inch casserole dish, combine 3 cups mashed butternut squash, white sugar, milk, vanilla extract, salt, flour, eggs and 1/4 cup melted margarine.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until set.

In a medium bowl combine crushed vanilla wafers, 1/2 cup melted margarine and brown sugar. Crumble over top of cooked casserole and return to oven to brown.


Alternately, you can prep the squash by cutting it into 4 pieces (cut the top off above the "belly"; then, slice each piece in halves), remove seeds with an ice-cream scooper, and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool; it will now be super easy to remove from the skin and ready to go in your casserole!

Didn't have vanilla wafers so I used honey graham crackers. Also cut white sugar in half. Fantastic!

My boyfriend and I just loved it! I already loved butternut squash but I wanted him to try it in a delicious way. Next time I will use a little less sugar though.

Soooo good! Served on a cool fall day at the cabin, and it was devoured! All my family said it tastes more like squash dessert than casserole. This one's going into my favorites!

Very good dish! I exchanged the wafers for vanilla Oreos since I didn't have the wafers. I included about 1/2 cup chopped pecans and accidentally omitted the brown sugar but put mini marshmallows around the edges. Yummy! andanaccidentalomitted the
