I looked at the acorn squash on the counter starring back forlornly. "I've been sitting here for five days," it seemed to cry out to me. "Please make me delicious and put me in your belly!" So I thought of dessert. Acorn squash for dessert!!! Ever thought of that?? Oohh... It's like cobbler, but ...without the cobbler.
Here you go:
Acorn Squash For Dessert
1 acorn squash
about 1/2 cup blueberries, blackberries, or both
2tbsp honey (I don't really measure it)
about 4 tbsp brown sugar
2-4 tbsp butter
Vanilla ice cream
Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Divide the ingredients in half and put fruit in first, Then cinnamon (sprinkle over whole inside of squash). Then honey and brown sugar. Then butter.
Place on cookie sheet and bake about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Squash should be softened.
Loosen up the flesh of the squash and fold into mix. Cover with ice cream. YUM!
