Spiced Baked Butternut Squash

This butternut squash is easy and flavorful -- just split the squash, scoop out the seeds, season, and bake.

Cook Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes


  • 2 small butternut squash
  • melted butter
  • cinnamon sugar


Brush a jelly-roll pan with butter and heat oven to 350°.

Carefully cut each squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and soft fibers with a spoon. Brush the inside of each squash with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place squash halves, seasoned cut side down, in the prepared pan. Add about 1/2 cup water to the pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Serve halves immediately or scoop the squash out into a serving dish and discard the skin.
Serves 4.

Easy and good, Member Georgia.Babydoll

I guessed on the amount of sugar and it could have been a little sweeter. I melted the butter n the microwave for 10 seconds, tossed some sugar and cinamon in then brushed it on the squash. It was easy enough which is a key factor for me as I don't particularly like to cook.
