Number 51 - YAPP

A few weeks ago, we had a potluck of sorts at work, and I brought in a couple of pies.  One was an old classic, the chocolate cream that chocolate lovers drool over.  The other, describes the acronym in this post's title.  

Yet Another "Pumpkin" Pie.  

It seems that I cannot stop making pumpkin pie variants.  This one combined some of my favorite aspects of other pies that hopefully made sense.  The end result, in my opinion, was the best yet.  Who knows, #52 might be another, but for the time being this is going to be my go-to Thanksgiving Pie.

This will look familiar

Essentially, it's the filling from the previous leader in the clubhouse.  But, the crust turned out to be a really good twist, or at least I thought so.  As per usual, I borrowed/shamelessly stole the recipe for the crust from this pie.

I really thought it turned out great and plan to stick with this one going forward.

One more picture

One last pie to go and I will officially have met my quota.  Who knows what that will mean.  I do have this side project that I supposedly started, but hasn't gotten much traction yet.  Perhaps that will take over.

Yum. Feel free to bring a pie when we go camping.

So you made a pumpkin pie, or a butternut squash pie? As a huge pumpkin pie fan, I need the recipe if it's pumpkin!

It's butternut squash, and it's soooo much better than pumpkin. I would highly recommend it for anyone who thinks they love pumpkin pie. That used to be me, and I am a total convert.

I will try it. Maybe this weekend even. Thanks! :)
