Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 butternut squash, 2-1/2 to 3 pounds
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1-1/2 quarts apples, cored, unpeeled and sliced
1-1/2 tablespoon shortening
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Nut topping:
4 cups corn flakes, crushed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out seeds; steam for 30 minutes or bake upside down on foil in a 325 degree oven until tender. Scrape out pulp and mash or beat until smooth. Set aside. Core and slice apples. Heat shortening in skillet, add apples. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover and simmer on low heat until apples are barely tender. Spread in a 9-inch round or 8-inch square casserole dish (1-1/2 quarts). Prepare nut topping by mixing together corn flakes, pecans, butter and brown sugar. Assemble by spooning the squash over the apples evenly. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 12-15 minutes until lightly brown. Serve hot. Makes 8 generous servings.
