    Great recipe! I only used 1 apple and 2T Splenda brown sugar blend and 1T Land O'Lakes light butter. It knocked the calorie count down but it's still great. I also was in at ime pinch so I microwaved the squash for 4 minutes and then added the apples and microwaved for another 4. Really great! - 9/16/08

    Awesome! I also added a handfull of craisins to the "stuffing" which added an extra zip of flavor! My son asked when I was going to make this again! - 10/18/08

    I added dates and sunflower seeds ( a nut mix I had at the back of the cupboard) and some nutritional yeast (for extra B-vitamins and buttery flavor) and this recipe was awesome. - 11/8/09

    This is terrific! I was in a hurry, so I microwaved the squash for 7 minutes, then baked it in the oven with the apples for 30 minutes. I also added some spice to the apple mixture. If fat and calories weren't an issue I'd double the sugar and butter, but it's really sweet enough as is! - 10/27/09

    delicous! i didnt add brown sugar to lower the calories, but put a package of splenda and added walnuts with the apples and put a low calorie syrup on top when it was finished. Mmmmm thanks for sharing! - 5/8/10

    I just cooked this tonight. Microwaved the squash 7 minutes per the comments above, and baked with the mixture in them for 40 minutes, and the squash needed all of that. Added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and a couple tablespoons of finely grated walnuts to the mixture. Diced apples fine. Fabulous! - 2/8/10

    This is a terrific recipe! I did notice that I did not need nearly as much stuffing as the recipe calls for; maybe my squash are small? Anyway, I put the rest of the stuffing in a small pan and baked it alongside of the squash, and it made a delicious apple treat for later. - 1/23/08

    Love this....it is a great dessert. I used real butter and instead of using brown sugar I used splenda. I imagine it would be better with the brown sugar, but I was out. - 11/25/07

    I've never had acorn squash before, but really enjoyed this dish. I made it as my contribution to a dinner party and everyone said it was one of the best acorn squash recipes they'd tasted. It's easy to make and doesn't take too much prep time at all. I can't wait to try it again! - 2/22/10

    This was REALLY yummy. Even my boyfriend who "doesn't eat squash" enjoyed it. I also added some cinnamon to the apple mix and sprinkled it over the squash before baking it the second time. - 9/28/09

  • Delicious and easy! I skipped the butter, substituted maple syrup for the sugar, and added raisins and cinnamon/ginger. Very easy and very yummy :) My apples were very large - I only needed a third of one. It's easy to bake the rest on the side as an extra treat. - 11/6/11

  • I tried this last night and it was wonderful. I used the Splenda brown sugar, but fout that I only save 20 calories by using it. Next time I will use just splenda. - 2/22/11

  • This was very good. I used Splenda and will use less the next time. I had a small squash that only required half an apple so my calories were less. - 2/2/11

  • a little strange texture-wise for me, and also I think I prefer my squash a little more simple -- just a dash of salt/pepper and cinnamon or nutmeg works great for me. It was a good way to get some extra fruit in, though. - 11/7/10

  • Per reading the other reviews - I started by putting this into the microwave for about 3 mins to soften it before trying to cut it in two - I used light Butter and added about an 1/8 cup of quick oats and pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to the apples - I thought it turned out really good ;-) - 10/26/10

  • I added cup of oatmeal, 2 tsps of cinnamon and cup of raisins to the center mixture. Instead of the full serving of brown sugar, I only used half and then used splenda for the other half. My kids, mother and I all ate it and it was great! I am going to make this again! - 9/29/10
