This recipe for Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash, which can be prepared ahead, is great for holiday entertaining.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut squashes in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and strings. Bake cut side down in 1/2-inch of water until tender, about 40 minutes. While squashes are baking, prepare the stuffing.
In a skillet melt the butter and saute apples and onion for 10 minutes or until both are very tender. In a large bowl combine apples and onion with raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cheese. Place cooked squashes on a cookie sheet and divide apple stuffing evenly among cavities. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until apples are soft and cheese is melted.
