Very easy & very tasty! I scaled the recipe in half but used the whole apple (it was really stuffed!) and sprinkled with cinnamon & nutmeg. Thanx Mira!

My wife and I loved the blending of flavors here. I think I used too big an acorn squash as the halves were not done after the suggested time. I would definitely try this again.

I made this last night. Just one acorn squash divided between the two of us. I added some dried cranberries to the mixture and used 1/8 cup PURE dark marple syrup in each cavity, about 1/8 cup of chopped pecans to each one, divided a tablespoon of real butter between the two and sprinkled lightly with Fleur de Sel at the finish along with a touch of cinnamon. I did omit the apple and water. Baked for exactly 35 minutes to perfection. Great recipe. Thanks for the inspiration. I know I didn't follow the recipe to the letter but it was DELICIOUS nevertheless. I'll make this again!
