Acorn Squash Baked in Butter and Maple Syrup

Jane Whittaker


When Acorn squash became plentiful in the fall, my Mom would fix this frequently, and no wonder, they are delicious, but so easy to fix.
Sometimes she would put brown sugar and butter in, or do like in the picture and use maple syrup and butter, either way they are yummy.
