Baked Acorn Squash

A quintessentially fall dish, its versatility makes for a hearty side, a charming dinner party appetizer, or a festive midday pick-me-up.

Baked Acorn Squash
Serves 2

1 acorn squash
1/2-1 tablespoon melted salted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
a few drizzles of maple syrup

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut acorn squash in half. Scoop out all of the seeds and stringy flesh. Place in a heavy, rimmed baking dish.

2.) Brush insides of squash with butter, sprinkle with sugar, and then give each half a healthy drizzle of maple syrup. Add 1/2 cup of water to the baking dish so the squash’s flesh does not burn while in the oven.

3.) Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes; until a knife easily pierces the skin and the tops are nicely browned.
