Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn Squash
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 2 t maple syrup
  • dash of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Using a strong knife, cut the acorn squash in half, lengthwise, from stem to end.
  3. Scoop out seeds and stringy part in center.
  4. Score the inside of each half several times with a sharp knife.
  5. Place each half in a baking pan, cut side up.
  6. Add about ¼ inch of water so the skin doesn't burn and squash doesn't dry out.
  7. Coat the inside of each squash with the butter.
  8. Add a dash of salt if using unsalted butter. Add 1 T brown sugar to each and drizzle 1 t maple syrup to each.
  9. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes (until squash is very soft and tops are browned).
