Acorn Squash Baked in Butter and Maple Syrup
How to Make Acorn Squash Baked in Butter and Maple Syrup
- Wash squash, prick all over with tines of a fork 7 or 8 times. Cook in the microwave until they start to soften. This will speed both prep and baking time.
- Slice squash lengthwise.
- Scoop out seeds.
- Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and put about 1/2 inch of water in it. Place the squash, cut side up, in a prepared pan. Put 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons maple syrup in each squash. Sprinkle salt and pepper over all.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour 15, minutes, or until fork-tender. Baste squash every 20 minutes.
