  • 1½ - 2 pounds acorn squash
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar


  • Cut acorn squash in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and membrane.
  • Cut each half into wedges.
  • Place wedges skin side down in large crock pot.
  • Melt butter and add brown sugar. Stir to make a thick paste. Spread the butter-sugar paste on the upper surface of each wedge.
  • Cover crockpot and cook on high for 1½ hours. Check wedges for “doneness” by piercing with a fork. If needed, cover and cook 30 minutes more.
