Servings 12 servings


  • 3 acorn squash medium to large size
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted oil will work too
  • cinnamon
  • honey
  • dash of salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Take your whole acorn squash, cut a slit into one side, until it pierces to the seeds, then microwave the whole acorn squash for 2 minutes. This softens the squash, so you can cut it. (this step is totally optional)
  • Next, carefully cut the ends off on each side. Cut down the middle and scoop out of the seeds from both halves. With each half, cut them in half again, just like you would do an apple.
  • Lay the acorn squash on your baking sheet, then brush each piece with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle each piece with a little salt and cinnamon.
  • Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes. You want the squash to not just be cooked through, but totally tender and golden brown on top.
  • Remove from the oven when done, then drizzle a little honey on top. Enjoy!
