BUTTERNUT SQUASH Baked with Honey
This is as basic and easy as you can possibly get.
Wash butternut and slice longwise into two halves. Place face down in a shallow pan with about 1/4 cup of water. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your squash. When you can stick a fork through the skin, it is done. Remove from the over, turn squash over and score the flesh with a fork. Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with a little mace, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, if you wish. Place back into the oven for about 10 minutes. Serve.
