This is Paula Deen’s easy and delicious baked acorn squash recipe. I am definitely serving this for a first course at Thanksgiving! Acorn squash baked with maple syrup and brown sugar; easy and delicious.
Preheat oven to 400. Halve each acorn squash. Scoop out the seeds and pulp of each half.
Mix the softened butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a small bowl until evenly combined.
Brush mixture on and in each acorn squash, surrounding the entire cavity and cut side up.
Place on a baking sheet cut side up and bake 50-60 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Serve squash warm in a bowl.
