  • 1
    Heat oven to 425ºF. In large bowl, mix butter and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Stir in all remaining Nut Cookie Crust ingredients just until crumbly. Press crust mixture on bottom and side of ungreased deep-dish pie plate, 9x1 1/2 inches, or regular pie plate, 9x1 1/4 inches, building up 1/2-inch edge (high edge is necessary to prevent filling from running over).
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs slightly. Stir in all remaining Squash Filling ingredients except milk until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Pour into crust. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning.
  • 3
    Bake pie 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF. Bake 45 to 55 minutes longer or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack, about 2 hours. Store covered in refrigerator.
