"This recipe is so good! In addition to making it with butternut squash, I've also made it with Heart of Gold and Sweet Dumpling squash. The results were equally delicious!"

"this was a nice twist to butternut squash. I didn't taste the honey much thought and I would cut back the cream to make it a thicker consistency. All in all good and a keeper."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 9, 2012

"very good, very easy. If you cook the squash in the microwave for around 30 minutes, the skin peels right off. Slice in half lengthwise, place in a pan with a little water and microwave on high for 20-30 minutes or until soft. Like you would for acorn squash. then I put into the mixer with ingredients. Very easy."
