Hello heidibird! (I like your username :P)
Hi Sass, I've never heard of Butter Squash, I'm wondering if you mean butternut or buttercup?
IMO, butternut isn't as sweet as acorn, and the texture is a little different.
Acorn squash is sweeter and the flesh is a little more stringy. We love it baked with butter and pepper. We had it that way for supper last night, it's easy and yummy.
Buttercup and carnival are favorites at my house, too. They taste pretty similar to acorn squash. The buttercup is really sweet, my DH says it tastes "just like sweet potato".
