Maple Butter Roasted Acorn Squash
Yield: Serves 2-4
1 acorn squash
1 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Split the acorn squash in half with a sharp knife (if your knife has a hard time cutting through, you can hammer the knife through with a mallet or rolling pin). Use a melon baller or spoon to remove the inner seeds, and discard them. Cut the acorn squash into 1-inch thick slices, and place them on a sheet pan.
