      Prepared with a freshly picked acorn squash from the garden. The cinnamon was reduced by half and the cognac was a *very nice touch*. Served with a main dish salad and crusty bread for an easy but elegant mid-week meal. Thanks for posting.

      Wonderful squash! I skipped the honey as I didn't have any in the house and used rum instead of brandy. Served it as a side to a lentil dish. Fantastic taste. The sweetness really compliments the sauce. Mine took about 60 minutes to bake.

      I used what I think is called a Uchiki Kuri Squash it is slightly different in it's flavor but it went well with this recipe. I used the full 2 tsp of Brandy along with the other spices. It was delightful how they brought out the flavor of the squash without overpowering it..There was still a distinct hint of Brandy mellowed with the cinnamon etc. Thanks Sue for another recipe for one of my favorite veggies - Squash
