DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Grease a small baking dish with high sides.
  • Place each half of squash cut-side up into the baking dish.
  • Add in about 1/2 inch water into the bottom of the baking dish so that the skins will not burn and the squash won't get dried out.
  • In a small bowl combine the cinnamon with soft butter.
  • Coat the inside of each half with 2 teaspoons soft butter, mixture then add in 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to the cavity of each half.
  • Drizzle 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup over the brown sugar.
  • Bake uncovered for about 1 hour and 10-15 minutes or until the squash is very soft and the tops are browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 20-30 minutes (this will allow the brown sugar/butter mixture to thicken slightly).
  • Using a spoon drizzle the buttery sugar mixture over any exposed area of the baked squash.
  • Serve and enjoy!
