The small squashes, e.g. butternut, can be baked. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut squash in half with sharp knife and remove seeds. Baste the cut sides with melted butter and honey, and sprinkle on some salt and cinnamon (optional). Place in an oiled baking dish and bake for one to one and a half hours, pasting regularly with a butter and honey mixture. When the skin can be pierced with a cocktail stick it is cooked.
