Butternut Squash Chess Pie

Butternut Squash Chess PieThe color of this burnt orange pie could be misleading.  Cinnamon, ginger, and cloves are not among its ingredients.  Instead, lemon is the starring flavor in this pie.  Together with lemon, roasted butternut squash is added to this classically southern pie, and the result is a filling of tangy citrusy custard, made richer and smoother thanks to the sweet nutty taste of the roasted squash.

There is nothing fancy or complicated about this pie.  Most of the ingredients are staple items.  If you have a squash on hand, you are good to go!

  1. Anything with lemon is a personal favorite! What a fabulous alternative to pumpkin pie. (which my family refuses to eat!) Besides butternut is so much sweeter than pumpkin. Happy Thanksgiving Mary!

  2. A Fall surprise, as the eye anticipates something like a pumpkin pie, but the tongue receives the most delicious lemon and chess pie delight !

  3. Gorgeous pie! Sounds amazing too.. Definitely saving the recipe! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Can’t wait to see you guys at Christmas!
