Acorn Squash Slices

Acorn Squash Slices

"'Acorn squash is a favorite with my family,' relates Mrs. Richard Lamb of Williamsburg, Indiana. 'This recipe gets sweet maple flavor from syrup and an appealing nuttiness from pecans. It's easy, too, because you don't have to peel the squash.'"

Acorn squash is very difficult to cut! A lot of trouble for a decent recipe. It was pretty good.

This is a great way to cook acorn squash. Next time I will cut the squash into bigger chunks instead of slicing as directed. I would recommend cutting in half and then quartering each half. G...

If you stick the whole squash in microwave for 1 minute on high it is much easier to slice!

This was the best acorn squash recipe ever. I cut in into bite sized chucnks as one person suggested and the next time I make I will defiantely remove the skin. Not too sweet either - perfect!!

I had to bake these about 15 minutes longer than the recipe states to get the slices nice and tender, but they had a wonderful flavor.

These were good and not too sweet. Just make sure to cut the slices evenly for even cooking. Some of my thicker pieces weren't quite done.

Wonderful! Allergic to pecans, so I used cashews. Really good flavor and a great substitution. A unique taste, really good!

My husband and loved this recipe. It was so easy. The sauce cooked up sweet and sticky around the edge of the pan and made a yummy "candy" to scrape up for dessert!
