First fall butternut pie

Butternut pie

I've been really enjoying our immersion blender. Not only does the tool allow me to cut up the skins of tomatoes in a flash, it also purees the batter for a butternut pie extremely well.

This pie also marks our first taste of the new hybrid butternut variety Metro. The result? Delicious! Of course, it's hard to go wrong with a butternut pie.

Hi Anna and Mark,

Sounds delicious :).

What is your recipe? Since it is not made in a pie pan I am assuming that it is the filling for a pie.

Sheila --- Here's our old tried and true recipe. I like to make pies in a casserole dish because we have a plastic lid that fits the glass pan, so we can just cover the pie and put it in the fridge then stack other things on top. (Plus, casserole dishes are deeper than pie pans.) So all of our pies are rectangles now. :-)
