To prevent maple burnout, you can sweeten the squash a little differently each time you make this recipe. Substitute a generous sprinkle of brown sugar or a dollop of apricot jam for the maple syrup.

Heat oven to 400° F. Halve each squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place the squash halves, cut-side up, on a rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan (lined with foil for easy cleanup, if desired). Sprinkle with the salt, dot with the butter, and spoon the maple syrup over the top. Bake until softened, about 50 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
