Apple-stuffed Acorn Squash

This recipe comes from Winder Farms in Utah:

Apple-stuffed Acorn Squash


*Acorn squash, halved
*1 T margarine
*1/4 cup chopped onion
*1 cup peeled and seeded Granny Smith Apple
*1/3 cup golden raisins (I used craisins)
*1 T brown sugar
*1/4 tsp cinnamon
*1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the squash onto a baking sheet cut side down.  Fill the baking sheet with 1/2 inch of water.  Bake the squash for 40 minutes.  drain off any water remaining.  While the squash is baking, melt the margarine over medium heat.  Cook the onion and apple in the margarine until the onion has softened and turned translucent---10 to 15 minutes.  Scrape the mixture into a bowl and cool until the squash is done baking.  Stir in the raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cheese into the apple mixture.  Turn the squash cut side up on the baking sheet.  Fill the cup and return to the oven.  cook about 15 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.
