2 acorn squash, cut in half lengthwise
4 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Kosher salt, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Wash and dry squash, and then cut in half lengthwise (along the ribs); be super careful. Scrape seeds and pulp from the insides with a spoon and discard.
In a small bowl combine the softened butter with the maple syrup, spread inside of each half with mixture, and then lightly dust all four halves with kosher salt and cayenne pepper.
Place halves cut side up on a baking dish lined with foil.
Bake for 45 minutes to one hour until soft, which will have a pool of goodness in the middle of each half. Use a pastry brush to evenly distribute pooled sauce on both halves of acorn squash. Stand to let cool for 10 minutes before serving. - Enjoy!
