Creamy Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn SquashThis is a very tasty and easy recipe for baked acorn squash. I will make only one change when making it again. I’ll add a pat of butter to each acorn squash along with the cream.


  • 2 acorn squash, halved lengthwise, seeded, and bottoms trimmed to lie flat if necessary
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place squash halves cut side up on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Divide cream and thyme among halves.
  2. Bake until squash is tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife – 35 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake until cheese is melted and golden. – 10 to 15 minutes.
