    spatchcock's Note:

    I bought a HUGE white squash at our local farmer's market this weekend; the little old lady selling it told me that I could get "5-6" pies out of it. Well, there was enough squash to make EIGHT PIES! So, I made two and froze the rest of the filling. Anyway, this recipe produces a spectacular pumpkiny custard, and you CAN replace the pumpkin with a mild-flavored squash; simply remove the seeds and rind, cut into chunks and boil until soft. Then puree, and voila--you have what usually comes in the cans! Originally from the Joy of Cooking.

      I've been making pumpkin pies with Cheese Squash, which must be the huge white one mentioned here for years. I always bake them, cut side down, until they are soft. After I puree the cooked squash, I drain it in a cheese cloth lined colender because I find they contain a lot of water.

      My Dh went for seconds. And My Son will no doubt finish it off. I doubled the recipe. Made it without a crust. I just spray the deep pie pan with oil. I did have to cook it longer then stated by 20 minutes.
