Ingredients

2 butternut squash (about 1 pound each)

4 tablespoons softened butter, divided

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 orange, zested

3 tablespoons orange blossom honey

Pinch ground cinnamon

Directions

Halve the squash lengthwise and remove the seeds and strings. Rub the insides with 2 tablespoons softened butter; season with salt and pepper. Place on a roasting pan, skin side down. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until fork tender. Remove the squash from the oven, scoop out the flesh and place in a food processor. Add the orange zest, honey and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Puree until smooth. Add a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Pulse a few times to incorporate.
