  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Wash and towel dry the acorn. Cut the acorn in half and scoop out the inside and discard. Spread the butter all over the inside of the squash, sprinkle brown sugar and black pepper.
  • Place acorn halves on a baking dish with water. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour. Check for doneness by inserting a knife into the flesh. Make sure it is cooked all the way. If not return to oven and bake for 15 - 20 minutes longer. Serve immediately.


User unsalted butter instead of salted butter to enjoy the natural sweetness of the acorn squash. Because size may vary, cooking time may be different.
