Looking for a delicious and easy way to enjoy the flavors of fall? Try this Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash! 🍂
Simple Maple Acorn Squash
1 Acord Squash
4 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons maple sirup or honey
Heat oven to 350°.
Cut acorn squash in half; remove seeds and fibrous pulp. Pierce the inside of the squash with a fork several times.
Place squash cut side up on a baking dish. Put 3-4 tablespoons of water in the bottom of the dish, which will create steam when cooking. Microwave for 6-7 minutes on high, or until the squash is easily pierced with a fork. (if you only have an oven: face down the squash in a baking dish and put it in a 350 oven for 50-60 minutes until fork tender).
Remove from the microwave, place 2 teaspoons of butter in the cavity of each squash and drizzle 1 tablespoon of maple syrup into the cavity and on the edges of the squash.
Add a couple of drops of vanilla, sprinkle cinnamon as desired, and add a dash of nutmeg to each squash.
Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes to melt butter and mix flavors.
