Baked Acorn Squash with Cinnamon and Raisins

When I was young I really did not have much of a taste for squash except for my moms pan fried zucchini. Some things do change I now enjoy many types of squash! Below is my simple recipe for baked acorn squash with cinnamon and raisins. We use it as our dessert because it tastes like dessert.

You will need...
One Acorn Squash (carefully cut in half)
Butter 1-2 tablespoons for each half
Brown Sugar 1/4 cup or a bit more for each half
Cinnamon 1/4-1/2 teaspoon for each half
Raisins a small handful for each half (more if you like or none at all)
8x12x2 baking pan or other size that works for you
2 1/2 - 3 cups water
Cooking Spray
Oven preheated to 400 degrees

Wash the squash and cut in half being careful it is a bit awkward. Scoop out the seeds then rinse the inside of the acorn in cold water. Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place acorn squash in baking pan adding all four ingredients lastly add the water to pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 40 minutes then remove foil and bake another 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. If a half is larger than you want you can cut them in half again after baking spooning the syrup over each quarter.
