Baked acorn squash recipe

Happy First Day of Fall! I'm celebrating the start of my very favorite season with one of my favorite fall recipes: Baked Acorn Squash with brown sugar and butter. You'll be surprised at just how easy it is to make.

Baked Acorn Squash

(serves 4)

2 acorn squash

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Salt

Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and strings. Sprinkle salt in each half. Place halves in a baking dish, cut side up. Fill dish with 1/4-inch of water to keep squash from sticking to bottom.

Melt butter. Stir in brown sugar until it dissolves. Fill each squash cavity with butter-sugar mixture. Drizzle any remaining butter-sugar on halves. Bake in oven on 400 for about 60 minutes until squash is soft.
