Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus more for surface
  • 2 medium acorn squash, (about 1 1/2 pounds each)
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously butter a rimmed baking sheet.

  2. Step 2

    Halve squash crosswise. Scoop out seeds; discard. Slice a small piece off bottom of each squash half just enough to level.

  3. Step 3

    Set squash halves, scooped sides down, on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn squash; prick insides all over with a fork. Divide 2 tablespoons butter and sugar among halves; season with salt and pepper. Continue to bake until flesh is easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

    This was absolutely amazing! Such perfectly roasted acorn squash! All I had was dk brown sugar but it worked just as well. Also grated fresh nutmeg over squash the last 1/2 hr. They turned out beautifully, so buttery and fresh. And the skins were just right. Very tender throughout. A new favorite fall dish, Thanks Martha!
