Squash and Apple Bake

This is so good you could almost serve it for dessert. There is a splendid apple pie flavor with sweet mashed squash on top. My guests raved about it.

Microwave squash for 5 – 8 minutes or until soft enough to handle safely. Peel squash and cut in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and cut in large pieces. Place in a large pan with 3 inches of water. Cover and steam for 20 - 30 minutes or until squash is very tender. Drain well. Add 1 tablespoon butter, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Mash with electric mixer. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch round pie pan. Thinly slice apples (1/8 inch thick) and arrange in bottom of the pie pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Spread squash over apples.

In a small bowl combine topping ingredients. Sprinkle over squash. Bake for 30- 40 minutes or until apples are tender.
