    I bought the squash and then didn't feel up to cooking that evening. My hubby did the cooking. He did a wonderful job. We didn't have the brandy, so he subbed with rum. A medium squash took about an hour to bake. It was soooo yummy! We loved the spices. They were a perfect balance with the squash and other ingredients. We will be making this again and again! Thanks so much, Sue Lau!

    Prepared with a freshly picked acorn squash from the garden. The cinnamon was reduced by half and the cognac was a *very nice touch*. Served with a main dish salad and crusty bread for an easy but elegant mid-week meal. Thanks for posting.

    Wonderful squash! I skipped the honey as I didn't have any in the house and used rum instead of brandy. Served it as a side to a lentil dish. Fantastic taste. The sweetness really compliments the sauce. Mine took about 60 minutes to bake.
