Recipe: Sugar Dumpling Squash

from Dreamy Dish

Sweet Dumpling Squash

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Cut the squash in half, and remove the seeds and extra bits with a spoon.  Turn upside down, and poke some holes in the skin with a fork.  Turn it back over, and place each half into a baking dish filled with an inch or so of water.

In each squash half, put the following ingredients, sprinkling spices on the top edge, too:

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon brown sugar

Bake uncovered on the middle oven rack for 40-45 minutes, or until tender.  Each half enthusiastically serves 1!
