Candy Roaster Pie

I found this recipe for a Candy Roaster Pie. Candy Roasters come in all sizes and varieties, but have been grown in the Appalachian Mountains for years and were believed to be the first “pumpkin” pie served at Thanksgiving. We grew North Georgia Candy Roasters this year and got some very large squash. But some at the State Fair this year were over 100lbs. You can eat them like pumpkin or like butternut, but they are fantastic. This recipe is more of an original version, but you could also use your favorite pumpkin pie recipe and substitute candy roaster.

Candy Roaster Pie

2 C. cooked candy roaster
1/2 to 3/4 C. sugar
2 eggs
2 T. flour
3/4 C. Carnation evap. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. lemon zest or rind
3 T. melted butter

Mix flour and sugar. Beat egg yolks and milk. Mix all together. Add
remaining ingredients and beat well. Pour into unbaked pie shells. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean.

If you like meringue pies, add a that as a topping half way through the baking, or let cool and serve with fresh whipped cream.
