  • 1 large acorn squash, sliced in half and seeded
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter, unsalted
  • 2 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup plus additional for drizzle
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F, rack in the middle.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  3. Spray the foil with baking spray.
  4. Slice each acorn half in 1” thick wedges.
  5. Place the wedges into a large mixing bowl.
  6. To the bowl add the rest of the ingredients.
  7. Gently mix/toss to coat all sides of the acorn wedges.
  8. Using tongs place each wedge onto the foil. Do not overlap.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the squash is fork tender but not mushy.
  10. Remove from the oven and plate.
  11. Drizzle with additional maple syrup if desired.


If you want to elevate this a bit, add in a 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder to the mix.

Also when it only has about 10 minutes left to bake, toss on some chopped pecans to give it some texture.
