About this recipe: A super-delicious baked squash dish. Acorn squash is baked until tender, then topped with a delectable buttery, sweet orange and brandy sauce. It's the perfect dish for the cold winter months.
If acorn squash is unavailable, use butternut squash instead.
I fixed this for Christmas dinner. Although I'm not a big squash lover, I have to admit, this was very tasty. My mom, dad and husband "loved" it and my dad even asked for the recipe. I followed the directions to the letter and wouldn't suggest changing anything. I'll fix this again. - 28 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A nice change of pace, but the orange flavour was a little overwhelming. Do yourself or the dishwasher a favour, and put some foil in the bottom of the pan. The sugar in the sauce makes a terrible burnt mess. - 31 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wonderful acorn squash recipe! My husband is not normally a huge fan of most squash, and even he thought this was a great dish. The orange brandy sauce really makes it; I did not have regular brandy, but I did have a bottle of Cointreau (orange brandy) which was wonderful because it only added to the orange flavor. I also used fresh o.j. right out of the fridge, since I never keep the concentrated stuff around. Delicious recipe! - 29 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
