Savory Squash Pie
This Savory Butternut Squash Pie recipe was a fan favorite from my former pie company, Shoofly Pie Baking Co. This pie has such a unique flavor with the hint of sweetness from butternut squash and the caramelized onions, that is balanced by the savory elements.
I was hesitant at first to share it because there are a lot of steps to make it. When you are baking pies for sale, those recipes don't always translate well when you are instructing others to replicate them because not everyone wants to spend hours in the kitchen for one pie! But, I'll just start by saying: this one is worth it. Truly! The flavors are so deep and nuanced that you're going to feel the same.
So what's the best way to tackle a baking project that takes a few steps to make? Break it down and spread it out over a few days!
To assemble this pie, you'll need to:
- roast diced butternut squash
- caramelize onions
- make pie dough
- blind bake pastry
- mix together filling
- bake the pie

Here are some ways to prep ahead:
Many of the steps needed to complete this pie can be done several days ahead. The pie dough, roasted butternut squash and caramelized onions can all be done 3 days ahead if not more. But I find the easiest way to make this recipe is to do it in two steps.
- roast squash
- roll out dough
- blind bake pie dough
- bake Pie
Pie Crust Options
There are a few different options to choose from to make this pie with. You can go classic with a butter pie crust, or go a little more savory with a spelt pie crust (my favorite) or whole wheat pie crust. See all the options below.
What to serve with this pie:
This pie is rich, in a good way of course! But anything that is rich in taste is complemented well by adding in some acid, so if it were me (and it often is) I'd serve this pie with a green salad with a nice tangy dressing! This pie would be great as a vegetarian option at a holiday meal or served a special dinner.
