This is from an old cookbook featuring recipes from American Inns. Cheshire Inn & Lodge in St. Louis, Missouri claims this wonderful dish. (Don't know if they're still around.)It has quite a few steps but isn't hard to make at all. Even if you're a newbie in the kitchen this will really impress your family and guests. Great for Thanksgiving.

Spoon mashed squash evenly over the apples.
Mix cornflakes with pecans, 1/2 c. brown sugar and melted butter. Sprinkle over squash.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Makes 8 servings.
