    PaulaG's Note:

    This squash has a delicate hint of orange combined with dried cranberries and a tart apple for a true taste delight. The maple syrup adds a delicate touch of sweetness.

      We love Acorn squash, this recipe is delicious. I used 1 apple & wished that I had used 2 & doubled everything as my squash was larger. Loved the flavor of the orange, dried cranberries, and apple pie spice(for the apple pie spice I made Apple Pie Spice-Great)the maple syrup adds a very good touch to this recipe.Thanks Paula, for another winner!
