Acorn Squash

Ahh....fall is in the air!! This recipe makes an easy side dish, but I usually end up eating most of it for dinner instead! Crack open a cider, and enjoy the flavors of this awesome squash.

Cut the squash in half, starting at the stem. You will need a very sharp knife and a lot of muscle! Score the insides a few times in each direction. Once you have the halves, place them on a cookie sheet, cut side up in about an inch of water. This will keep the skin from burning. In each half, put 2T of butter or margarine, salt and pepper to taste, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice and about 1/8 cup of raw sugar (brown sugar works as well). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1.5 hours.
