Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn Squash

Acorn Squash
Kosher Salt
Brown Sugar
Pure Maple Syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Half each squash, then scrape out the seeds and stringy membranes. Sprinkle each half with salt. Add a generous tablespoon of butter to the center of each squash. Add 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons brown sugar. Drizzle squash with maple syrup. Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of the baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake an additional 30-45 minutes, or until squash is golden brown.
In the last 5 minutes of baking, turn on the broiler and allow tops to get a little more brown and the butter/sugar mixture to bubble.
Serve on a platter
