2 tablespoons butter, plus more for baking sheet
2 medium organic acorn squash
2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
Coarse salt and ground pepperMethod
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously butter a rimmed baking sheet.
- Halve 2 medium acorn squash (about 1 1/2 pounds each) crosswise. Scoop out seeds; discard. Slice a small piece off bottom of each squash half just enough to level.
- Set squash halves, scooped sides down, on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn squash; prick insides all over with a fork. Divide 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar among halves; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
- Continue to bake until flesh is easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 25 to 30 minutes.
- Serve warm.
