  • 18 oz delicata squash approx, 510g - 1 squash
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter 12g, divided
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup divided
  • ½ pastry recipe see separate tart/empanada dough recipe linked above or use 1 sheet of ready-made shortcrust pastry
  • 2 tablespoon dried cranberries


  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C.
  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and pulp. Cut each half into relatively thin half-circles.
  • Melt 1tbsp of the butter and mix with 1tbsp of the maple syrup. Lay the squash slices out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle over the butter-maple mixture, toss gently then roast for approx 20min until the squash is tender but not quite browning. You can do this a day ahead and chill the slices overnight, if suits better. If you are making immediately, simply allow to cool slightly until cool enough to handle.
  • While the squash is cooking, make the pastry, if making from scratch, and chill until needed.
  • When ready to make up tart, reduce the oven to 375F/190C.
  • Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface into a circle. Lay the squash slices on the pastry, leaving a rim around the edge to fold in slightly but only slightly cover on top. Sprinkle over the cranberries. Melt the rest of the butter, mix with the remaining 1tbsp maple syrup and drizzle over the squash.
  • Fold in the sides of the pastry, making slight folds as you go, then bake for approx 20min until gently browned.
