Thanksgiving Butternut Squash Pie

Have you ever tried a butternut squash pie? I think it tastes better than pumpkin pie because it has a milder taste. We grow our own butternut squash, these plants are very , hearty, when I see  that the butternut squash is ready to pick I know fall is around the corner. Which means Thanksgiving, and  butternut squash pie will be on the menu for dessert. Try this recipe and see if you will agree with me, that it taste better than pumpkin pie.
