    Bergy's Note:

    Butternut or acorn squash are great for this recipe. I searched Zaar for a similar recipe but could not find one so decided to post this one. This is a tasty and attractive way to serve squash. Especially lovely on your holiday table. If you wish peel the squash and cut it into bite size pieces, place all the ingredients into a casserole dish, mix well, cover casserole & bake at 375 for apprx 1 hour

      Bergy, I LOVE YOUR RECIPES!!! I made this a few weeks ago minus the spices and only used 1 TBS brown sugar and 1 TBS butter for 1/2 sweet dumpling squash, and one large apple. I also added some rotisserie chicken. I cooked the squash that was cut in half & seeded in a pan with 1/2 inch water, with the cut side down, for about 45 minutes. Then I cooled it enough to handle and peeled it, cut it into chunks and mixed it with the apples in a casserole and baked 10 minutes covered, then added 1 cup rotisserie chicken and covered and baked 15 minutes, then I put the dried cranberries on just as I was bringing it to the table. My mom and I LOVED it, and so did my 15 yo Son! I took it to potluck last night, again with out spices, used 1 sweet dumpling, 2 apples, 1 TBS butter and brown sugar. Everyone loved it! Thanks for the idea!
