Acorn Squash

My mom loved acorn squash cooked this way. I made it for Tim and he absolutely loved it. This would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving as it is so simple to prepare.

 

Maple Brown Sugar Acorn Squash:

2 acorn squash Sliced in half and seeds removed

1/4 cup brown sugar, divided

1/2 stick butter

1/4 cup maple brown sugar

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter. Place the squash on cookie sheets.  Fill the center with the brown sugar. Brush the cut edges with the melted butter. Pour rest of the butter into the center of the squash. Pour the maple syrup into the center of the squash. Cover the pans with foil and bake for 30 to 45 minutes till squash is fork tender. Remove from the oven and cool slightly, Slice into wedges, Drizzle with more syrup if you like.
