Hi Margaret, tha

Hi Margaret, thank you for your comment! "Cut sides" refers to the inside portion of the squash-- the side you cut in half. You'll want to place the squash "cut side" up and rub that side with the mixture. Happy cooking!

I haven't tried

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but need to know what you mean by "cut sides of the squash with the butter mixture"???? Do you mean cut the brown sugar and butter together and then place in the squash???
