Nutty Brown Sugar Squash

This recipe comes from Get-Togethers with Gooseberry Patch. It's one of those cookbooks that is beautiful and I bought it and it's companion because they look so darn good. So it was really great when the recipes were really yummy too. Not just the pictures.

1 1/2 c. water
1 acorn squash, halved and seeded

1 T. brown sugar, pakced and divided
2 t. butter, divided
salt and peper to taste
1/2 c. chopped peacans, divided

Pour water into a 13"x9" baking dish; add squash cut-side down and back at 350 for 45 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan and fill with sugar/butter/pecan filling.
Return to oven and back an additional 10 minutes.
Makes 2 to 4 servings.

Note: I doubled the filling above so, for example, 1 T. brown sugar is in each half. It didn't seem to go very far when it was divided.
