      I make this every Thanksgiving (got the recipe from the Cooking Club of America originally.) It always gets the rave reviews. I lighten it up by using less butter, splenda brown sugar mix and egg product-no one can tell!

      You won't need dessert after these! Easy done, and fast - I cooked the squash in my microwave (cut in half, upside down with a little water for 15 minutes on HIGH) and mixed in the brown sugar and butter with the spices. My kids have a day off school today, so that's why I forgot the Dijon mustard, but they taste great anyway.
