Ingredients

Number of serving: 6

for the pie filling:

2 whole acorn squash

four tablespoons butter

1 cup evaporated milk


1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cardamom

1/4 teaspoon cloves

A pinch of salt

1 Granny Smith or Macintosh apple

Preparation

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut the acorn squash in half lengthwise and scoop the seeds out with a spoon. Fill each half with 1 teaspoon of butter.
  • Place in a baking dish and add two cups of water. Bake the squash for one hour, or until it is very tender when you poke it with a fork.
  • Scoop the squash out of it’s skin into a food processor. Puree until very smooth. In a large mixing bowl, combine the squash, eggs, evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and spices. Mix well.
  • Peel and cut the apple into 1/4 inch slices. Arrange them in a circle around the bottom of a well-buttered glass pie dish.
  • Pour the filling over the apples until it almost reaches the top of the pie dish. Bake for 1 hour or until a knife comes out clean.
  • Let the pie cool for about twenty minutes before serving. The pie will be good served cold or hot. Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
