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

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
3 cups butternut squash; mashed/cooked
1 cup Granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk

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

Preparation

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.

Notes

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!

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!
