  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Place squash, cut-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon brown sugar into the cavity of each squash half.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until skin is crispy and flesh is tender, about 1 hour. Cool until squash is easily handled, about 10 minutes.
  4. Scoop flesh into a large bowl; add remaining butter, brown sugar, and apple pie spice. Whip squash mixture with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy.

  • If desired, put whipped squash into casserole dish and cover with marshmallows and put back in the oven for 15 minutes till brown.
  • Can be made ahead and reheated in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 30 minutes.
