I fixed this for Christmas dinner. Although I'm not a big squash lover, I have to admit, this was very tasty. My mom, dad and husband "loved" it and my dad even asked for the recipe. I followed the directions to the letter and wouldn't suggest changing anything. I'll fix this again.

Wonderful acorn squash recipe! My husband is not normally a huge fan of most squash, and even he thought this was a great dish. The orange brandy sauce really makes it; I did not have regular brandy, but I did have a bottle of Cointreau (orange brandy) which was wonderful because it only added to the orange flavor. I also used fresh o.j. right out of the fridge, since I never keep the concentrated stuff around. Delicious recipe!

A nice change of pace, but the orange flavour was a little overwhelming. Do yourself or the dishwasher a favour, and put some foil in the bottom of the pan. The sugar in the sauce makes a terrible burnt mess.
