Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour 5 min
Ready in: 1 hour 25 min
Yields: 8 Servings


  • 1 butternut squash (2 to 2 1/2 lb), peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 4 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. In 11x7-inch microwavable dish, spread squash cubes. Add water; sprinkle with salt. Cover with plastic wrap, folding back one edge or corner 1/4 inch to vent steam. Microwave on High about 5 minutes or until squash is crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients with spoon. Sprinkle evenly over squash.
  3. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until streusel is brown.
  4. Expert Tip: If your microwave has a turntable you can’t turn off, try cooking the squash in batches in a round microwavable dish. Just before topping the squash with streusel, sprinkle a cup of sweetened dried cranberries over the squash.
