 Ingredients List

  • 2 whole Acorn Squash
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 to 3 tpsp Brown Sugar
  • Pure Maple Syrup


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Halve each squash then scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes. Place the halves, flesh side up on a baking sheet and sprinkle each half with salt.

3. Add a generous tablespoon of butter to the center of each squash followed by 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar. Drizzle squash with maple syrup.

4. Pour 2 cups of water in the bottom of the baking pan.

5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 30 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

6. The Pioneer Woman says-in the last 5 minutes of baking, turn on the broiler and allow the tops to get a little more brown. Enjoy!
