I also use butternut squash and it is a wonderfully different version of pumpkin pie. People are surprised to hear it is made of squash.

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 :)
