This is an easy, fun and great introduction to get kids cooking in the kitchen. See recipe below:

3 C (about 1 1/2 whole squash) cooked acorn squash, seeds removed, scooped
1 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 T cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice or (1/3 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/3 tsp ginger, 1/3 tsp cinnamon)
1 T vanilla
Mix above ingredients in a bowl, then spread in baking pan (9×13 give or take).
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C brown sugar or cane sugar (or half and half)
1 C whole oats
Mix above ingredients until a crumbled consistency. Cover topping over apple mixture. Place in 350 preheated oven for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown and sides are bubbling. Using a fork, check that apples are tender. Remove from oven to cool to room temp. Will serve 12+. Refrigerate if crisp will not be eaten within a couple days.
