"Used others suggestions to add the clove & nutmeg and they turned out delicious! Used acorn squash ~ they were very moist, my 1 year old gobbled them up!"

"These were very good but I would like a bit more spice to mine. Next time I'll try adding some nutmeg & maybe some cloves. Overall though, I really like these especially with the whole wheat flour. Great way to use up the leftover cooked squash."
