Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash, cut into 8 wedges
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place wedges in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt, then roast for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix into a paste. Remove squash from oven and spread sugar butter all over squash. Return to the oven for 30 more minutes until squash has browned and is caramelized.
Halfway through roasting, your paste will have become a sauce. Brush sauce over the top of the squash and then continue roasting until time is complete.
