"I made this using Butternut squash fresh from our garden. It is delicious and easy to make.I substituted pumpkin pie spice for the spices listed and it was wonderful.Will definitely use this recipe again!"
"This pie is awesome!!! I didn't have enough heavy cream so I had to substitute half & half for some of it and also used pumpkin pie spice instead of the individual spices listed. The pie came out wonderful and filled my house with an incredible aroma :)"
