recipe byhttp

2 Acorn Squashes
2 tbsp melted butter or olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup pecans
sea salt
2 tbsp maple syrup, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice squashes in half, lengthwise.
  3. Slice of a wee bit of the outside shell so the squash has a flat surface to stand on.
  4. Scoop out the seeds.
  5. Brush inside of squash with melted butter or olive oil.
  6. Place cut-side down on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes.
  7. Flip squash over with tongs or a spatula and place 1/2 tbsp of butter and about 1 tbsp of roughly chopped pecans into the cavity of each squash half and sprinkle with sea salt. Reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake for about 15-25 minutes.
  8. When squash is tender enough to easily fall away when scraped with a fork, remove from oven, drizzle a bit of maple syrup into each half (optional), and enjoy it’s heavenly goodness.
