"Acorn squash is a favorite with my family," relates Mrs. Richard Lamb of Williamsburg, Indiana. "This recipe gets sweet maple flavor from syrup and an appealing nuttiness from pecans. It's easy, too, because you don't have to peel the squash."

  • 2 medium acorn squash (about 1-1/2 pounds each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

"I didn't have maple syrup, so I added some dark brown sugar to the melted butter and brushed it on instead; it was very good!"
