Spiced Winter Squash
Sponge Bob was not injured in the making of this recipe.
Since it is squash season here's my favorite way to cook squash ( sorry Sponge Bob ) Use any you like, my faves are pumpkin, butternut & acorn but I never met a sqaush I didn't like !
Wash & then cut your squash in half lengthwise & remove the seeds . Do not peel.
Place cut side up in an ovenproof baking dish. Pour about 1/2 cup of water around squash but not on or in.
in a small bowl mix :
3-4 TBSP butter, melted
1 TBSP honey or brown sugar
2 tsp. lime juice
1 1/2 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice ( commercial mix or make your own of cinnamon, allspice & pinches of cloves & nutmeg)
pour mixture into the hollows of the squash and bake in oven preheated to 350 for about 1 hour or until squash is tender in middle when pricked with a fork. Enjoy !
