About this recipe: This is a fantastic autumn dish. Butternut squash is baked with apples, butter, light brown soft sugar and seasonings. Enjoy as a side dish. It goes well with roasted meats.
I always, always get rave reviews when I make this dish for company. My family loves it too, including my picky kids! Instead of mace, I add 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg and I never use anything but Granny Smith apples. This one is definately a keeper! - 16 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Not quite a five star but more than a four. I used about a 1/4 t allspice, 1/4 t nutmeg, and 1/2 t cinnamon to replace mace. Next time, I think I'll cube the squash to get better mixing with the apples. I don't know why it said to sprinkle the spice mix. It was like a thick sauce that had to be spread. - 30 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The mixture for this squash is wonderful but there is not enough of it. Also it is a bear to clean the dish you cook it in. I would make again without the apples and double the mix and coat the pan. Great flavor in the surgar mix! - 21 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
