You can describe this pie as delicate. It is not your usual sweet rich pie but a mildly sweet and lemony variation of it. We’ve used both plain flour and oat flour for the crust but feel free and entirely replace one with the other. It’s your choice. However, don’t give up on cinnamon!

Ingredients Needed for Butternut Squash Pie

    ½ cup oat flour
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    orange zest
    lemon zest
    1 tablespoon yogurt
    1 cup warm milk
    7 ounces butternut squash, grated
    5 ounces of cottage cheese

How to Make Butternut Squash Pie

  1. Add the plain flour and oat flour to a dough mixer bowl. Season with cinnamon, orange zest, and lemon zest. Mix until even using a spatula.
  2. Add the yogurt and start mixing. Gradually add the milk in the process. Mix until you have a dough, then set aside.
  3. Add the grated squash to a bowl. Season with salt, add the cottage cheese and orange extract and mix until even.
  4. Take 1/4 from the dough ball and shape it into a thin long cylindrical shape. You’ll use it for the pie’s edge.

  6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer the dough disc on it.
  7. Fit the long dough shape along the disc edge by pressing it with your fingers.
