Pecan Acorn Squash

The holiday season is once again coming upon us! I know that I will be spending lots of time getting the house ready and being in the kitchen. This means now, I just want to get a meal out on the table and oh, my husband should probably eat it.

This recipe is great because it is sweet. And I already bought all my Halloween candy and would like to keep my husband from eating it before the kids even have a chance at it. Enter a sweet dinner to get his mind off all the candy! (I have got to find better hiding spots...drat living in a small house!)

This would probably also be a great side dish!


1 acorn squash, halved lengthwise with seeds removed
some water, enough for your pan, I would say maybe about 1/3 cup?
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
2 tablespoons of butter, softened
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ginger
1 teaspoon of vanilla


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place the squash in a pan cut side up with water poured in the pan.

Mix in a bowl the pecans, butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and vanilla. Divide this mixture evenly into the squash.

Bake for 30 minutes or until squash is tender.

Dinners can be sweet right?


  1. This looks amazing- I've been on the hunt for squash recipes like this because it's something I enjoy, but have never really made/experimented with!


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
