Butternut-Squash & Sweet-Potato Pie

This is a play on the traditional pumpkin pie. In place of pumpkin, this pie is filled with some candied butternut-squash and sweet-potato along with holiday spices. Though sweet potato is used, it does not make the pie too sweet. If you are bored with the everyday run-of-the-mill pumpkin pie, this is one recipe I would recommend. This is a recipe by Bruno Albouze.
