  • Coat with cooking spray.
  • Place on a baking sheet with the tops and roast for 45 minutes
  • Add the butter and brown sugar directly into the shell.
  • Using a from, gently remove the flash from the sides and bottom of the shell.
  • If using an additional squash to fill the shell, remove the flesh from the skin and add it to the one with the butter. Using the same fork, mash the squash with the butter & sugar until smooth.
