  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir cinnamon and brown sugar through the melted butter; remove from heat and stir crushed saltine crackers into the butter until moistened.
  3. Pour enough water into a baking dish to be about 1 inch deep. Lay the acorn squash into the water with the rounded sides down. Fill the cavity of the squash with the saltine cracker mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the squash is easy to pierce with a fork, about 45 minutes.

Loved this simple way to prepare acorn squash. I wondered what the crush saltines would do texture-wise to this dish. It baked up crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty and delicious. Due to a time cru...

Exactly what I wanted! I made it twice, the second time I increased the amount of saltines and I also added walnut pieces. Delicious. Thanks!

It was good. I think next time I will reduce the butter. It seem at little much. I will make this again.
