Butternut squash and apples

This is a delicious use of both butternut squash and apples.  A family favorite of ours, especially around the holidays.  We like using our Mutsu apples which are both crisp and sweet with a little tartness.  This is so quick to put together that I enjoy fixing it often and everybody raves over it.


  • 1 1/2 lbs. butternut squash
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. mace

Cut squash in 1/2 inch slices and peel. Peel and core apples and slice as for pie. Arrange squash in a baking dish. Top with apples. Then add the brown sugar, flour, and mace which you have mixed together and the melted butter on top. Cover bake 1 hour at 350 degrees. This recipe fills a 2 quart casserole dish. Serves 8.
