  • 2 Tbl butter, room temp
  • 1 Gala apple, peeled and chopped into small pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F

  3. Using a spoon, de-seed and remove the fibers from the squash.
  4. Lightly oil the inside of the squash and add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to each half flesh.
  5. Turn the squash, flesh side down onto a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until just tender.
  6. While it’s baking, make the streusel: Add the 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, and 3/4 stick butter in a bowl.
  7. Using a pastry cutter, cut it until it forms a crumble.
  8. Add the apple pieces into the streusel.
  9. Remove the squash from the oven and flip them over gently.
  10. Add 1 Tbl of butter and 1 Tbl brown sugar to each squash.
  11. Divide the apple streusel in half and add to each squash. Mound it up high; gently press down.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the flesh is fork tender and the streusel is barely crisp on the top and the apples are soft.
