Everybody keeps talking about Acorn Squash Which is very good. But this recpie is for Butternut squash????

I have been preparing acorn squash like this for years. I introduced my husband to it and he loves it. A lot of people don't know what an acorn squash is (especially at the grocery store register. Try it.

The best way to cook acorn squash is to cut in half, scoop out the seeds. cut tiny bit off of the bottom side to keep the squash from rolling. Fill both cups with butter, brown sugar and nuts if you want them; Bake at 350 for about an hour and may longer depending on the size of the squash. I like mine well done, soft. Very Good!!

What's the best way to cook acorn squash? And when do you know it is done enough to eat? Do you cook it like the butternut squash?
