Squash Pie

--------------------

1 c. sugar
¾ tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
¾ tsp. ginger
¼ tsp. mace
1 c. steamed squash, strained
3 eggs
1 c. heavy cream or evaporated milk
1 unbaked 10” pie crust

 
Add sugar, salt & spices to squash & mix. 
Beat eggs; add cream and mix with squash.
Pour into unbaked crust & bake at 400 degrees
for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees
and bake for 40 minutes. 
Pie is done when knife inserted
in center comes out clean.

Note:  I use cushaw or pumpkin for this recipe.
Also, I sometimes don't use a pie crust – just put in greased 1 ½ quart casserole dish & bake at 350 degrees about 45-50 minutes.
