I love having squash in the fall! This recipe is pretty sweet, but you can use less sugar to make it less so. But why would you want to do that? :o) It also works with any winter squash.
1 acorn squash
1/4 cup butter, melted
6 tbsp brown sugar (use more or less to taste)
1/4 cup orange juice (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350.
Cut squash in half and clean out seeds.
Place cut side down in baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until tender.
Turn cut side up.
Mix butter and orange juice, if using. Pour over squash and into the seed cavity. Sprinkle with the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Bake 20 minutes longer, basting once or twice.
