2 tablespoon light margarine
2 tablespoon chopped walnuts
2 tablespoon maple syrup
4 tablespoon apple juice
4 tablespoon dates
2 tablespoon golden raisins
2 acorn squash (about 24 ounces)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash squash. Cut in half widthwise and spoon out centers. Cut the stem off so that each squash half will stand upright. Pour a cup of water in a large baking dish. Place the four squash halves upright in baking dish. Set aside. In nonstick fry pan, melt margarine. Add walnuts and saute until golden, about two to three minutes. Remove pan from heat and add remaining ingredients. Spoon evenly into center of squash.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in covered dish or until each squash is tender when poked with a fork. Remove from oven. Using a spoon, drizzle a tablespoon of liquid from the center of the squash on the top. Place under broiler and broil for approximately two to three minutes until golden.
