I made this the other night just to see if I would like it and loved it, and I did. I did find it had too much of a pepper taste and I did follow the recipe to a "T". I made another batch for a Harvest Party but this time I left the pepper out and added cinnamon and a little more nutmeg. I then mixed the two batches and it turned out great. Everyone loved it and had very little left. I will be making this as long as butternut squash is in season.
