Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Split each squash in half lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds and fiber from centers. Slice a thin piece from each bottom so they will rest flat in the pan. Place squash in a shallow baking dish. Mix spices together and sprinkle over squash. Mix melted butter with vinegar; drizzle over squash. Add 1/2 Tbs. maple syrup to each cavity. Cover dish with foil and bake for 1 and 3/4 hours. Remove foil; baste. Return to oven for 10 minutes.
