Baked Acorn Squash

Serves 8
Prep/cooking time: Approximately 60 minutes


4 acorn squash
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. unsalted butter
4 tsp. ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a large rimmed baking sheet with
foil. Next, lightly spray foil with cooking spray. Slice off tops of squash
and cut each into quarters. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard
seeds and fibers. Place ½ tsp. butter inside each squash quarter and
sprinkle each with cinnamon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place
squash quarters on a baking sheet, spaced far enough apart so they
don't touch. Bake until squash is tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.
