Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust deep-dish pie
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/3 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup mashed cooked butternut squash
  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato (about 1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash ground cloves
  • Whipped cream, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream, squash, sweet potato, honey, flour, salt and spices. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 50-60 minutes. Cover edge loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Remove foil. Cool on a wire rack; serve within 2 hours or refrigerate and serve cold. If desired, top with whipped cream.
Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches): Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
