    Mikekey's Note:

    From a Cranberry Cookbook put out by the Westport-Grayland Washington Chamber of Commerce. (The Cranberry Coast) NOTE: Everyone said this made too much filling for 1 squash, so I changed the recipe to 2 squashes, to serve 4. Easy to halve for 2 servings. Microwave instructions included at end of regular instructions.

      This was AWESOME!! I steamed the squash in the microwave for 10 minutes while the cranberries cooked. Mine thickened without using any corn starch. For a little extra flair I drizzled a little dab of honey over the top just before serving. Sooo very, very good! Served with roasted split chicken breasts. Supper on the table in under an hour!! PERFECT week night fare and fancy enough for company! Thanks for posting!!

      This was absolutely FANTASTIC! My first time trying Acorn Squash. My hubby and myself LOVED..LOVED..LOVED it! We had leftovers the next day and it was even better after all the flavors mingled.. OMGsh! I can't say enough about this dish! The only changes I made was to use splenda instead of the sugar, pecans for the walnuts and then at the end baking step, a sprinkle of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend over the top.
