Okay, so I'm hungry now!! lol. I found a new recipe I cant wait to try this year. It's Butternut Squash and Granny Smith apples baked with a Maple Syrup glaze and Pecans.
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 - 3 large granny smith apples, cored, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp vinegar
1/4 cup chopped pecans, roasted
--preheat oven to 375, place butter in 3 quart glass baking dish, heat in oven till butter melted.
--stir in cinnamon and nutmeg, add squash, toss to coat. cover with foil, bake 20 minutes. meanwhile in a large bowl mix apples, maple syrup, and vinegar.
--pour apple mixture over squash. cover, bake 10 minutes. stir, bake 5-10 minutes longer or untill squash is tender. stir before serving, top with pecans.
And for sweets!! I like this one because you can make them the night before and keep them in the fridge, and pull them out whenever you need them.
