Gourde Pie from Platina

1 cup of purreed butternut spuash – Squash was quartered, baked in 350 oven for hour and then purreed in food processor.

1 cup sugar

1 cup cream

3 eggs

½ cup of whipped cream cheese

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp salt

Premade pie shell

Wisk all of the ingredients together and place in pie shell.  Bake at 400 for 10 minutes and then 350 for 50 to 60 minutes.

NOTES: This recipe also called for ginger and butter which I regret not adding.  The pie was very sweet and I would be inclined to use only ¾ cup sugar next time.  The pie was very light compared to a pumpkin pie.  I might substitute ½ cup of ricotta cheese instead of the cream cheese.
