Sooooo delicious! It was a pain to peel and boil the squash, but the end result is totally worth it! This was a hug hit at a potluck dinner I recently attended. One note, I did end up baking this for about 75 minutes as it seemed like it hadn't completely set at 60 minutes.
My brother made 2 trays of this for Thanksgiving... 20 people later.. GONE!!!! YUM, YUM, YUM Thanks for posting and all you other foodies out there.. this is a must try, not just for Thanksgiving but anytime.
