Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 2 acorn squashes
  • boiling water
  • 3 tart apples, such as Granny Smith
  • melted butter, about 1/2 cup plus 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup honey

Wash squashes and halve lengthwise; scoop out seeds and scrape out fibers. Put halved squashes into baking dish, cut side down. Put the baking dish on the oven rack and add about 1/2 inch of boiling water to the dish. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.

While acorn squashes are baking, prepare the apple stuffing. Peel, core, and dice the apples. Mix apples with 1/4 cup melted butter and the honey. Turn acorn squash halves cut side up and brush with melted butter then sprinkle with salt. Fill each acorn squash half with apple and honey mixture. Cover pan with aluminum foil and continue baking at 400° for 30 minutes longer, until squash and apples are tender.

I made it for the first time last Saturday (11-22-2008) for Thanksgiving Dinner held at my home (even though it wasn't on Thanksgiving Day but I planned it before). Everyone whom I invited enjoyed it very much, especially one of my friends who ate some this afternoon (11-24-2008). However, I made it like mashed potatoes so everyone can eat it, instead of, only 2 people. But the taste remained same.
