  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x11-inch casserole dish.
  2. Place squash on a flat work surface. Trim off the hard outer rind with a knife. Cut squash into 1/2-inch slices; arrange slices over the bottom of the prepared dish. Arrange apples on top.
  3. Combine brown sugar, butter, flour, salt, and mace together in a bowl. Pour mixture over the apples. Sprinkle cranberries on top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown and apples are tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may substitute 1/4 cup maple syrup for 1/4 cup of the brown sugar.
  • Butternut squash may be substituted for the buttercup squash. You can slice the squash into slightly bigger pieces.
