READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Oolala

This is from a cookbook called "Cooking by the Numbers" which referred to the amount of people the recipes served. I haven't tried this yet but it couldn't be more simple.

I did the same, then sprinkled cinnamon on the top of the squash just before baking. I baked covered, in a pan with about 1/2 inch of water, for one hour. They were fabulous; you could easily serve this "vegetable" as a dessert!


  1. Cut squash in half and scrape the cavities clean.
  2. Melt the butter and mix with the brown sugar and sherry.
  3. Pile this mixture into each cavity and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.
