Autumn Baking






When Autumn is in the air……

Although we do live here in central Florida, we do experience a bit of climate change in the Autumn months.  It does get a little bit cooler and that is when we are in the mood to do some baking.  Especially with all the lovely squash and pumpkin that are in season.  Although we do have quite a bit more Autumn baking to do, I wanted to start with the Acorn Squash recipe.

Acorn Squash

(This recipe I, Julie, got from my mother.  She loved to bake acorn squash in the oven with all the nice Christmassy spices.  This is delicious and it smells up the entire house with it’s aroma.)

Acorn Squash


2 Acorn Squash

2 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon

1 Tbsp. Ground Ginger

1/2 Tbsp. Ground Cloves

1/2 Tbsp. Ground Nutmeg

4 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

4 Tbsp. Butter

First slice your squash in half and remove the seeds with a spoon.  Then, slice a small part of the squash off to allow it to sit flat.


Preheat your oven to 400’F

On a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil, place your sliced squash cavity side up.

Place your butter, spices, and brown sugar in the cavity of the squash.

Place your squash in the center of the oven and bake until golden brown and fork tender ~35 min.

Let cool,
