Easy Acorn Squash

In looking for a new acorn squash recipe, I came across this one at We had several acorn squash that needed using, guests were coming over, and this sounded nice and easy, as well as yummy. It was! Simple to whip up, delicious to eat, and filling to boot. 

Easy Acorn Squash

Acorn squash(es), halved and seeded
1 Tb. butter (for each squash half)
1-2 Tb. sucanat or raw sugar (for each squash half)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Turn acorn squash upside down onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until begins to soften, approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Remove squash from oven and turn onto plate so flesh is facing upwards. 

Place butter and sucanat into squash. (I just sprinkled an amount that looked good; it probably amounted to about 1 Tb. per squash half.) Place squash in baking dish (so squash won't slide around too much) while baking.

Check squash after 30-45 minutes and add more time if not softened. When softened, turn on broil and brown lightly, if desired (watch closely, as this happens quickly).
