Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish.
In a bowl, combine squash and dried fruit.
In another bowl, combine maple syrup, butter, and spices. Pour over squash and dried fruit and stir to combine. Pour into prepared dish. Place in center of oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until squash is tender.
Sprinkle almonds on top of squash and put under broiler for 5 minutes, or until almonds start to brown.
