Best of Season

Acorn squash is a winter squash which should be relatively heavy with a tough rind.

How to Store Nuts

Nuts have a high oil content that can become rancid quickly and will ruin any dish that they are used in. Store shelled nuts in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 months. For longer storage, place shelled nuts in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Do not chop nuts before storing; nuts stay fresh longer when stored in larger pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love acorn squash. I love acorn squash. This recipe caught my eye right away. I plan on making this recipe for Thanksgiving this year. I make something different every year and I was planing to make acorn squash with butter and brown sugar in the 'bowl' of the squash but now I plan on making this wonderful recipe with a twist.I plan on putting dried cranberries and out the raisins for the color and flavor they will add to the stuffing and squash. I cant wait until THANKSGIVING this year.Thank u Kraft.

Mmm -- I love acorn squash, and I'm always looking for new (and simple) ways to cook it. This was perfect; the great thing is you can switch up the dried fruit and nuts to suit your taste. I used pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and cranberries for a Fall feel. And I only used 1 tbsp butter but added a few more tbsps of water to the stuffing. It still turned out moist!
