Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Use a spoon to scoop out the squash’s seeds and discard (or save and roast them a la pumpkin seeds).
Lightly salt the squash’s flesh.
Divide the cubes of butter between the 2 halves, placing it in in the center of each.
Top with the brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon.
Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until squash is soft and brown sugar/butter mixture is bubbly.
