You’ll probably need 2 butternut squash for this recipe. Cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and place them cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until very soft.

Measure out 3 cups of the squash and use a hand-held mixer to beat it with the other filling ingredients until smooth.

This casserole goes really well with both roast turkey and ham. It may be your new favorite Thanksgiving casserole.  The texture is so creamy and smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. The cookie crumb topping is to die for!
