    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    An easy way to prepare squash. Even folks who hate squash will love this one. Serve it as a side dish, or even as a dessert. This recipe can be prepared with butternut or acorn squash (or any other winter squash), but will require longer cooking times. Kosher: Dairy.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Cut the squash in half and remove seeds with a spoon.
    3. 3
      Use a fork to poke several holes in the outside skin of each half of the squash. Place squash in baking pan with hollow side up. Add 1" of water to bottom of pan.
    4. 4
      Place 1 tablespoon of butter, 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in the hollow of each squash half. Pour 1/4 cup of maple syrup on each.
    5. 5
      Bake uncovered on middle rack for 30-45 minutes or until the flesh is soft.
    6. 6
      Serve hot. If using sweet dumpling squash, each half will serve one person and can be served with dinner "as is." Alternately, you may allow the squash halves to cool partially, remove the skins, and mash or puree the squash.

      It was okay. It took a lot longer to cook for me and wasn't great but not terrible, just kind of meh.

      Yummy, yummy, yummy..this was my first time making and eating a winter squash and it was really good. I looked at the recipe on the sticker of the squash and it is the very same one as posted here. When I poked the skin on the outside, I didn't poke the holes all the way through and nothing leaked out for me. Thanks for posting as it was just the push I really needed to try my first winter squash!

      Way too sweet. Poking holes through the skin just made the butter and syrup leak out. IF I ever make this again, I will not poke holes through the skin.
