Everyone I have made it for absolutely LOVES this dessert, so I am sure you will too! I have tried different recipes over the years and discovered that in my opinion, the best pumpkin pie is actually made with butternut squash. I know, that feels a bit like cheating and not as fun, but believe me it’s really yummy.
I’m not sure where the idea of a pie in the pan came from, but it sparked our imagination when we realised there would be less washing up! I think the flavours and warmth lend itself well to the autumn. There are so many varieties of squash and pumpkins this time of year, so you can experiment with whichever you can get your hands on.
This is a great dish for a cold winter evening or when you just need some comfort food to warm you and your belly up. You can make a big batch and freeze the rest in portions to re heat when you need a quick tasty dinner.
