  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Flip squash and sprinkle cinnamon into the center and dot with butter. Continue baking until flesh can be easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes more.

  • Scoop flesh into a bowl and mix in brown sugar until evenly combined.

Cook's Note:

If you would like something more savory, instead of cinnamon and brown sugar, other spices work well to, such as nutmeg or garlic. Whatever fits your taste!
