Golden Acorn Pie

Golden Acorn Pie

Introduction

I was at the store and couldn't resist buying some beautiful squash while I was there. DBF loves pies so I made him this special treat. It was very well recieved and I can't wait to make this during Christmas when I go home to see my family. It takes a long time to make, but it is worth it. I hope to upload a photo before it's all gone. I was at the store and couldn't resist buying some beautiful squash while I was there. DBF loves pies so I made him this special treat.

Ingredients

    1 graham pie crust
    1 golden acorn squash
    (you will need a cup of it for the pie)
    1 cup Silk
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    3 beaten eggs
    2 Tbsp water
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp lemon extract
    1/4 tsp coconut oil
    1/4 tsp almond extract

Directions

For lower calories I cut this pie into 16 small servings. Whip cream is a great addition if you like it.

---Preheat oven to 350*---
Cut squash in half, removing stems and seeds
Place face down on baking sheet in preheated oven and cook for 50 to 60 minutes, or until tender
This is a good time to mix up the other ingredients
Remove from oven and let cool
Puree 1 cup squash in a blender

---Preheat oven to 425*---
Combine 1 cup squash, 1 cup silk, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 brown sugar, 1 Tbsp water, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 1/4 tsp lemon extract, 1/4 tsp coconut oil in a large bowl and mix thoroughly until even and smooth.

Pour into pie crust

Place pie in oven at 425* for 10 MINUTES
Reduce heat to 300* and bake for 55 minutes

Pie is done when you insert a knife 1 inch from the crust and it comes out clean

Let cool for at least 15 minutes
Delicious chilled in the fridge too!
