Anybody have any idea why there's a tablespoon of melted butter in the recipe?
New England Squash Pie
1-3/4 c mashed squash (strain if necessary)
1/2 t salt
1-1/2 c milk
2 large eggs
1 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t ginger
1 T melted butter
Pour into a 9 inch pie shell and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the edge comes out clean.
Would I make this recipe again? Yes! The custard's not as flavorful as pumpkin pie, but has a nice, bright taste.
Addendum: I served this pie to Mom & Dad tonight with mixed results. Dad kept a piece for himself while Mom declined, saying it was ok, but not as good as pumpkin pie.
