baked autumn acorn squash ♥

Here is a nice warm recipe on a cool fall day, I remember my mother used to make this when the days started getting chillier, great as a side dish, or a quick meal, enjoy!


1 acorn squash
2 tablespoons (butter fat free)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup (sugar free)
Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the squash in half and scoop out all of the seeds and pulp inside. Soften the butter to room temperature. Combine it with the sugar and maple syrup. Rub the insides and top edges of the squash with the butter mixture. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Place the halves on a baking sheet, cut side up. If needed, slice a small piece off the opposite side to keep them standing upright. Be careful not to cut too deep and make a whole or the butter mixture will drip out and melt. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour or until very soft when pierced with a fork. enjoy!
