This has become a must-have at Thanksgiving. It's so good it tastes like it could be dessert! Even people who don't usually like squash change their mind after trying this. It's a delicious blend of different tastes and textures. I use buttercup squash, but acorn squash can also be used; Jonathan, Rome or other dry apples work best. It can also be made a day ahead of time--just add the cornflake topping and bake the next day.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the squash pieces in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until the squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; then mash the squash with 1/4 cup butter, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, salt, and white pepper.
  3. Heat the 1 1/2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over low heat; stir in sliced apples and sprinkle with the white sugar. Cover and cook over low heat until barely tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spread the apples in a 3-quart casserole. Spoon the mashed squash evenly over the apples.
  4. Stir together the cornflakes, pecans, the 1/2 cup brown sugar, and melted butter. Sprinkle the cornflake mixture evenly over the squash.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 15 minutes.

I served this to 15 people and everybody loved it. I used butternut squash ( couldn't find buttercup). I used Jonagold apples and reduced the white sugar to 1/8 cup. I also reduced the brown sugar in the topping to 1/3 cup. I cooked and mashed the squash the day before so it was very quick to prepare. Thanks for a great dish!

Absolutely awesome! The whole family loved it! Squash is hard to peel (this was my 1st time) & the only way I found to make it any easier was to have my husband cut it into small pieces and then I peeled them. I put it together the night before, but didn't cook it until about an hour before the event. It came out awesome!!

This recipe was wonderful as it stands. The only thing different I did was use Butternut squash instead of Buttercup only because it was what I had bought. I served it for Thanksgiving Dinner and everyone had two helpings, some had three!!
