Baked Brown Butter and Maple Syrup Acorn Squash

This is amazing! Not my children's favorite, but that's okay...I made it for my husband and I for lunch with a side salad. They opted for mac n' cheese:) Fork tender, sweet, and you can taste the brown sugar and maple syrup with every bite. You will enjoy this one. Happy fall!
