Fall, Thanksgiving Dessert: Easy Squash Honey Pie Recipe

We're still in summer weather mode here in California, but I know many parts of the country are ready for Fall recipes, so I've picked out a delicious Squash Honey Pie Recipe. It can become a new tradition for your Thanksgiving tables and all through Fall. Add more honey to taste if you prefer.

For Thanksgiving I always have three standard desserts which family and friends request -- Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie and Apple Tart. It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving for them without these desserts, but each year I also have a new dessert or two on the table depending on how many guests we are welcoming into our home, or perhaps to bring as a hostess gift or Autumn party potluck item. I don't mind having plenty of extras for any party as everyone always loves to take those home. Pies and tarts make particularly tasty breakfasts too, and used to be common breakfast fare as a matter of fact.

Link up your vintage desserts. What traditional desserts do you serve in the Fall and for Thanksgiving?  Holidays are often a time when we will make recipes which have been in the family for a generation or more, so share with all of us, won't you?

Be sure to follow proper blogging etiquette. Problems with spammers are forcing me to delete anyone not following the rules.

2 cups squash
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups thin cream
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Few grains of salt

If you follow basic linky party etiquette, I thank you. All your hostesses and fellow bloggers will appreciate it and you will benefit too. You will find that you are helping your own blogs become more popular and helping the foodie community remain a friendly community. Because of those who don't follow such etiquette, I'm saddened to say that for the first time in almost 4 years of blogging, I will have to resort to deleting those who abuse the use of the linky parties here at Joy of Desserts. For basic linky party etiquette you MUST: Follow the linky party theme; link directly to your participating posts; link back to all your hostesses on each participating post (NOT a different page), and don't just link and run. Please do your best to visit fellow participants and leave them a comment. Thank you!

  1. I am finally back into the swing of things. Now I have some home made tomato soup and grilled cheese. Can't get better for a quick pick me up. Throw in a salad and dessert and all is good.

  2. Your squash honey pie sounds delicious! I think I could eat a piece for my lunch!

    This week, I've done another adaptation from my copy of Modern Meal Maker (1935). Thanks for hosting!!!
