Acorn Squash With Spiced Brazil Nut Filling

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

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.

Top Review by Chef PotPie

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
