Apple Butter Baked Acorn Squash

Ingredients:
1 acorn squash (or other winter squash)
2 Tbsp apple butter (try Alstede Farms’ brand!)
2 pats of butter
pinch of nutmeg

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut your acorn squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and extra pulp.
2. Place your acorn squash pieces skin side down in a shallow baking dish. Fill each squash with a generous dollop of apple butter, top with a pat of butter. Add some water to the dish (about 1/4 inch). Bake on the middle rack for about an hour (or until nicely caramelized).  Sprinkle each with a pinch of nutmeg.
3. Serve hot. Use a fork to scoop out your yummy squash.
