I bake over 200 of these cupcakes for our church suppers, and we always run out. If you can't find Key lime juice, use lime juice. Just add a tad more sugar. —Julie Herrera-Lemler, Rochester, Minnesota

Squash Custard Pie

Squash Custard Pie

Meet the Cook: Acorn squash has been a favorite of mine since I was little and my mother baked it with sugar and cinnamon. This particular pie was something I improvised. We love pumpkin pie...but had fresh squash in excess. So I came up with this new variation! It's good to take to potlucks, to pie or cake walks at school - or to serve as a different dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We (my husband and I have a 10-year-old son) moved out to the country to get away from the crowds. Our home's on 15 acres. We're grazing a few cattle this year, and deer, wild pigs and an occasional skunk visit at night. -Mary Kelly, Hopland, California
