My mom made this pie all the time growing up. It is really great for kids and those who don't like squash too much. It really is a pie- it's sweet and yummy. People are surprised when you tell them that it has squash in it. It can be frozen for the winter as well and is a great way to have yummy squash all year long. I even like eating them frozen- like ice cream.
- 1 3⁄4 cups cooked yellow squash, drained
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
