Instructions
Squash Puree
  1. It may be helpful to make the squash puree in advance. To prepare the squash puree, cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and place cut side down on a buttered baking sheet. Bake at 375F until a fork pierces the shell easily. Time will vary depending on the squash, but roughly 45 minutes. When squash is cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh and puree in a blender.
Squash Pie
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Prepare the crust: Using a food processor or high quality blender, mix all the crust’s ingredients until the oats are coarsely ground. (If you are working with a smaller and/or lower-powered blender, grind the oats on their own first and then mix in the oil and maple syrup.) Pour into a 9″ pie plate and spread and press evenly using a spatula or your fingers. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
  3. While the crust is baking, mix 1 1/2 cups of the squash purée with spices in a large bowl, or right into your previously used food processor or blender if it has a large capacity. Stir in the maple syrup, milk and flour. Mix in eggs one at a time. Pour filling into baked crust.
  4. Bake at 350F until center is set, about 45 minutes. The key to a delicious custard is to not over bake it, so start checking the pie at 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold, any time of day 🙂
