This recipe is very delicious. Would be perfect for fall.

i replaced the apples and butternut squash with peaches it was delicious

We love this recipe at our house.  We do skip the corn syrup and add 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple juice.  Reducing the sugar to 1/2 cup is still delicious and very sweet.  We top with low-fat vanilla yogurt. 

We made a small revision to remove the corn syrup from this recipe.  It tastes plenty sweet and that's one less ingredient!

I have reduced the sugar in the filling to 1/2 cup (and even less) with good results.
