Baked Acorn Squash
4 med. acorn squash
8 Tbsp. butter or margarine
16 tsp. honey
Fresh ground pepper for seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the squash in half crosswise and scoop out the pulp and seeds. Trim the bottoms so that the squash will stand hollow side up. Place 2 tsp. honey in the hollow of each squash. Add 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine to each and a speck or two of fresh ground pepper. Place squash in a large, shallow baking pan and bake, uncovered, in a moderate oven for about 2 1/2 hours or until the squash are tender.
