courtesy of

Ingredients
2 tablespoons butter, plus more for baking sheet
2 medium organic acorn squash
2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
Coarse salt and ground pepper

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously butter a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Continue to bake until flesh is easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Serve warm.
