Another wonderful recipe from To Many Cooks by Nancy Wood Moorman (cookbookmarketplace.com). There's a cheese lattice topping instead of a crust topping so there's more protein and more flavor. Use a good quality cheese, like an aged Gouda.

Directions

  1. For the crust, process the pumpkin seeds in a food processor until ground to a meal. Add the flour and butter and process to the texture of a coarse meal. Add the water and process until the mixture forms a ball.
  2. Flatten to a disk and sprinkle with flour. Roll to about 1/8-inch thickness and press into a tart pan. Prick with a fork and chill for 30 minutes. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden.
  3. Combine the squash with the cream, butter, egg, salt and pepper and mix well or process until smooth. Spoon into the cooled tart shell.
  4. Slice the cheese into strips and arrange them on the tart to form a lattice. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is slightly puffed and cheese is melted.
