deb's Story

Well, I had it all planed out to make this and then forgot all about it until I was rummaging around trying to find some potatoes and found my acorn squash hidden in the back. Then after we had dinner, and we had eaten our squash, did I realize that I had not taken the final photo. Dang.


1 large
acorn squash
4 Tbsp
2/3 c
brown sugar
1/2 c
maple syrup (mrs. butterworth)
2 large
dashes of pumpkin pie spice

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Cut acorn squash in half and remove seeds.
Set into a microwave safe baking dish that will hold both halves.
Add 2 Tbsp butter, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup of maple syrup into each half and sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice on each.
Add about 1/4" to 1/2" water into bottom of baking dish.
Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size of your squash.
