Honey Cinnamon Acorn Squash

Prep Time: 10min
Cook Time: 60min
Serves 2

1 acorn squash
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter, softened 
Pumpkin Pie Spice or Cinnamon will do

Cut squash in half so that the halves are identical. Scoop the seeds and stringy stuff out of the squash cavities and discard. In a small mixing bowl, combine the honey, butter, and spices to taste. Rub the squash cavities and cut sides of the squash with the butter mixture and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Bake in the preheated oven at 400F for about 1 hour until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Serve 1 half per person. You can either serve in the skin of the squash by placing it in a bowl or you can scoop the squash out, mix it with a fork and then add more spice to the top! It's a family favorite in the Fall season and Luke (our 10 month old) loved it as well. Enjoy! 


  1. We make this all year round--I only use a drizzle of honey and 1 tsp of butter per half, however! Richard likes his with a tsp of chopped walnuts in the center:)
