      Pretty basic recipe and easy to make. My husband was in heaven, I thought it needed just a little more something for juice, vanilla..I'm not sure. I'll keep experimenting. Thanks.

      This is the same basic way I make acorn squash. My recipe uses only 1 tsp brown sugar and doesn't have pepper. It also has you bake the squash cut side down for 35 minutes, flip them over and spoon the sugar/butter mixture over the edges...letting some spill into the cavity, and broil for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. I doubt the end result is much different between the two recipes, so I'm rating this one instead of posting my own.

      This is the way I've always prepared acorn squash and still my favorite! Sometimes simple is best. I will admit, though, that I've never measured anything, just put in what looks right! Tasty!
