Acorn Squash Recipe.
2 acorn squash (1 to 1 1/2 pounds each)
5 tablespoons maple flavored syrup
4 tablesoon heavy whipping cream, butter or stick margarine
Heat oven to 350.
2. Cut each squash lengthwise in half; remove seeds and fibers. Place squash, cut sides up in ungreased rectangular pan, (9X13). Spoon 1 tablespoon maple syrup and 1 tablespoon whipping cream into each half.
3. Bake uncovered about 1 hour until tender.
my favorite though is apple-stuffed acorn squash: Omit maple syrup and whipping cream. Bake squash halves 30 minutes. Mix 1 large tart red apple, diced, 2 tablespoons chopped nuts, 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar and 1 tablesppons butter or stick margarine, melted. Spoon apple mixture into squash halves. Bake about 30 minutes longer or until tender.
I personally add oats and cinnamon to the apple mixture and drizzle with real maple syrup... super yum!
