This is a family favorite we always serve at Thanksgiving. My sister got it from the Cheshire Inn, in either VA or MD. Even non-squash lovers love this. A good, less sweet, alternative to the traditional sweet potato casserole.
- 3 cups butternut squash, cooked and mashed
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 6 cups granny smith apples, unpeeled, sliced (2 lbs apples)
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup corn flakes, coarsely crushed
