"I've made this simple side dish for more than 35 years," says Alpha Wilson of Roswell, New Mexico. Cinnamon and ginger give a nice spiced flavor to the moist tender squash halves. You can use up the extra squash in the two recipes that follow.


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 medium acorn squash


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix the first five ingredients. Cut squash in half; remove and discard seeds. Fill squash halves with butter mixture.
  2. Place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, covered, 1 hour or until squash is tender. Bake, uncovered, 10 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly.
