Pumpkin pie Recipe from scratch (Butternut squash pie)
Its pumpkin pumkin everywhere now!! How can someone resist experiment with these nutritious goodies?!! I love and love anything with pumpkin, being it sweet or Savory. Pumpkin pie is not something which I was grown up with or my childhood favorite, but its in my current favorite list and will be there forever from now on!!!
The flaky crust and smooth and luscious filling is simply amazing. Made pie filling from scratch. Its super simple to make. You just simply need to pop pumpkin/butternut squash in the oven, bake till it is soft and make puree. Add your choice of spices and rest of the ingredients in food processer and your pie filling is ready!!!
Contrary to the traditional pumpkin pie, I have kept some hidden yumminess in between crust and pumpkin filling 😉….coconut and cashew mixture, to give slight crunch and nuttiness!! The crust I used here is my favorite one, which I used for my Dulce de leche cheese cake as well.
Hubby’s colleague sent me alot of butternut squash from his own vegetable garden. I was literally celebrating with them all these days 😄.
Don’t forget to grab some pumpkin and try this recipe if you are a pumpkin lover like me 😋, you don’t need a special occassion to make this…. If you are less member family like me, freeze the left over….it will stay there for more than a month!!
