I thought this was a nice change from the usual butter/brown sugar/maple syrup thing. From an old Rodale cookbook; not tried, posted for safekeeping. Prep time includes a little extra time for the baked squash to cool a bit before completing the recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Halve squash lengthwise. Remove seeds and stringy membranes.
  3. Bake 40-45 minutes.
  4. Fill squash with applesauce, brushing a bit over the exposed edges. Sprinkle with spice.
  5. Broil 4-5 minutes.
