I look forward to fall because of all the different dishes I can make with squash. This recipe happens to be my favorite. Its a quick fix for a sweet tooth craving and you only need 3 ingredients! The caramelized butter and brown sugar give the acorn squash such an amazing flavor. Since it is baked on a flat surface, the brown sugar and butter does leak off the squash a little.  No worries, that’s nothing a little sprinkle of brown sugar can’t fix. The more the merrier right? I love to enjoy this sweet snack with a cup of coffee or tea, but eating it by itself tastes just as good.
