BAKING WINTER SQUASH: Butternut!



Winter Squash is wonderful!  These 2 butternut squashes make a tasty casserole that is easy to make.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Wash and cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds and pulp (I feed these to the squirrels) and cut into pieces to boil in a large pot. When tender, remove and peel off the outer rind.  Put the soft flesh in a large bowl and mash it. (should be about 3-4 cups) I use the pastry cutter. 
 Add to this:
1 cup sugar, 2 beaten eggs, 1/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup melted butter and 1 tsp vanilla extract.  Mix well and put in a buttered casserole dish.



 The topping will go on next before it goes in your oven. Mix: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 2 1/2 tsp melted butter and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.  Sprinkle on top evenly.  Now....Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
