IngredientsRecipe for 4
Preparation time: 60 min
Preheat your Oven at 400 °F
- Pie dough
In the bowl of your stand mixer with the hook attachment, combine the soft butter and the sugar, salt and flour. It should give a sand like texture. Add the egg yolk and the milk.
Gently knead with your hands, pressing lightly with the palm of your hand. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
All that is left is to roll it out to the desired shape and size.
- Squash Purée
Cut the squash in 2 and bake in the oven at 400°F skin side down for 1 hour or until tender.
Pass the flesh in the blender until nice and smooth.
Next, making sure the purée is room temperature, incorporate the eggs, sugar, brown sugar and the rest of the ingredients.
Roll out and line a pie plate with the dough.
Transfer the squash mix to the pie, almost to the top. It should be opaque, smooth and dense.
Cook in the oven at 400°F for 1 hour or until the center can be poked with a toothpick and come out clean. Like a cake.
Resting time for pie dough is essential, it will help it keep its shape when cooking. It will also be less stretchy or elastic when you roll it out.
