Ingredients: 

1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed 

3 tbsp. butter, cubed 

3 tbsp. maple syrup 

Cinnamon, to preference 

Preheat your oven to 350. Peel your squash (raw), cut lengthwise, scoop out seeds and cube. Line baking dish with squash evenly. You may have to use two depending on their size. Do not overfill or it will cook unevenly. Place butter cubes throughout the squash. Drizzle on maple syrup and then sprinkle on as much cinnamon as you would like. I tend to go VERY heavy on the cinnamon, but to each their own! Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 5 minutes. Pull oven rack out slightly, remove foil and stir around melted butter mixture. Place back in the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Optional: at the end of your bake time, turn broiler on to high and broil for 3-4 minutes to caramelize the sugars in the squash. Soooo yummy. Enjoy!
