Ingredients
  • 1 chilled and unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 1 butternut squash, about 2 pounds
  • 1 cup (110 g) light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) lactose-free whole milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preparation
  1. Position the oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400° F.
  2. Remove the squash stem and wash the outside. Using a cleaver, cut the squash in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray a little bit of canola oil on it. Lay the squash halves cut side down on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the skin blisters and has dark brown spots and the flesh is fork tender, about 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Reduce heat to 350° F and move the rack down to the lower third of the oven.
  3. Scrape the flesh out and discard the squash skins. Puree the flesh in a food processor or in a bowl with an immersion blender.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 1-1/2 cups of the pureed squash, brown sugar, eggs, lactose-free whole milk, cinnamon, salt, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture into the chilled pie crust and bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the filling are set and the middle is still slightly loose, about 50 to 60 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack and chill until ready to serve.
