Nut-crusted winter squash

This is such a good recipe! I got it from Luna Circle Farm when I was a member of their CSA.

Squash:
1-2 winter squash (I like to use butternut)
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper

Topping:
1 tbsp cold butter, cut into little pieces
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1/2 C coarsely chopped pecans

  1. Cook the squash - with skin on, cut into large chunks and steam over boiling water for 25 minutes or roast in the oven. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then peel skin off squash pieces with a paring knife.
  2. Mash squash with butter, brown sugar, and salt and pepper. Place in a greased 2-qt casserole dish.
  3. Make topping - combine butter, sugar, and flour and blend using a fork. Add nuts and stir. Sprinkle over the squash, adding more nuts if desired.
  4. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. You can also microwave the squash, then add the topping, and broil for a few minutes to let it brown.
