krs recipe corner

so i'm in the middle of moving out of one house and into another house at the moment, and i found this recipe that my mom emailed to me around the holidays in my file cabinet with a bunch of drawings and stuff... it's pretty good so i thought i'd share!

it doesn't really have a name, so let's call it "baked squash and apples and stuff"

2 lb. butternut or buttercup squash
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c melted butter
1 tbs. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 baking apples, cored and cut into slices (i used the braeburn ones, but any baking apple should do...)

heat over to 350 degrees f (i don't know the celsius equivellent of the top of my head, sorry!)
cut suash, remove seeds, fiber, and peel. cut into slices.
stir together rest of ingredients except apples
arrange squash in square cassarole dish.
top w/ apples
then top w/ mixture
cover w/ foil
cook 50-60 minutes

when i made this last time i used an acorn squash because the grocery store by my house didn't have butternut or buttercup squash, it still turned out good although the ridges in the acorn squash can make it a little hard to peel...
and yes, you can use earth balance or some vegan alternative to butter if that's your jam...
sorry i don't have a photo of this dish, but trust me- it's delicious!
