    Whole and chopped Brazil Nuts can now be found in my area thanks to Trader Joe's and EarthFare. This is great recipe for a brazil nut filling. From an old Southern Living.

      This topping almost made the squash a dessert! I used brown sugar, (force of habit!), and otherwise followed the recipe. It was fabulous. I will make this often. ZWT 7 - Shady Ladies

      This recipe is pure genius! The Brazil nuts are a wonderful addition to the spices! I reduced the recipe to 2.5 servings, which was one acorn squash. 1/4 cup of Brazil Nuts was the exact amount in the Planters Premium Select Mixed Nuts Tin! Thank you so much Mary..... I already have plans to make this fabulous recipe again!!! Divine!!

      My only problem was that I bought what I thought was acorn squash, which turned out to be pepper squash- they must be a lot bigger because there wasn't nearly enough filling. I have to give this 5 stars, though, for being so tasty! I subbed oil for butter. Zaar Tag :-)
