Bourbon Maple Roasted Squash

Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  I love the cooler weather, the crispness in the air, and all the colors and scents of the season.  I also love all the seasonal fall foods, particularly squashes.

Baked squash is a favorite side dish of mine, especially bourbon maple roasted squash.  It just doesn't get any better than this.  It smells amazing while cooking, too!

2 small squash cut in half with seeds and pulp removed (I like to use delicata squash)
4 tsp Butter or margarine
4 tsp Maple syrup
4 tsp bourbon

Place squash cut side up in the baking dish.  Fill the center of each squash with 1 teaspoon each of butter, maple syrup and bourbon. Sprinkle the tops of each filled squash with allspice.  Cover baking dish with foil and bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes.
