Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place squash on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss. Spread squash in a single layer. Place garlic on a piece of parchment-lined foil. Drizzle with oil and wrap loosely. Place on baking sheet with squash. Bake until squash is soft and golden brown, about 50 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add scallions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes.
  3. Scoop flesh from squash, and transfer to a food processor. Squeeze garlic from skins and add to squash. Add remaining 6 tablespoons butter, the sour cream, cream cheese, parmesan, and lemon juice, and pulse until just combined but not smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour into a hollowed-out squash or a serving bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Sprinkle with paprika and garnish with pepitas. Serve with baguette.
