About this recipe: A wonderful way to serve squash. Sliced apples are topped with mashed buttercup squash, crushed cornflakes, pecans and brown sugar, then baked. Serve as a side dish.
If buttercup squash is unavailable, substitute in acorn or butternut squash.
I served this to 15 people and everybody loved it. I used butternut squash ( couldn't find buttercup). I used Jonagold apples and reduced the white sugar to 1/8 cup. I also reduced the brown sugar in the topping to 1/3 cup. I cooked and mashed the squash the day before so it was very quick to prepare. Thanks for a great dish! - 29 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely awesome! The whole family loved it! Squash is hard to peel (this was my 1st time) & the only way I found to make it any easier was to have my husband cut it into small pieces and then I peeled them. I put it together the night before, but didn't cook it until about an hour before the event. It came out awesome!! - 26 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was wonderful as it stands. The only thing different I did was use Butternut squash instead of Buttercup only because it was what I had bought. I served it for Thanksgiving Dinner and everyone had two helpings, some had three!! - 30 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
