Made from maple syrup, maple sugar has a more intense flavor and sticks to the squash well. To save time, you can skip peeling the squash.
Preheat oven to 425°.
Cut each squash in half lengthwise. Discard seeds and membranes. Cut each half crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices; peel. Combine maple sugar, oil, and salt in a large bowl. Add squash; toss to coat.
Place squash in a 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 40 minutes or until tender, stirring every 10 minutes.
