Season the inside of the squash with salt and pepper. Place the squash cut side down onto the cookie sheet and then place into the oven. Roast until the squash is tender to the touch. In a sauce pan heat the cream and the butter until warm and melted. Add the cardamom to the liquid and steep until the squash is ready to be used. Remove the squash from the oven and let cool until able to handle without burning the hands. Scrape the flesh from the skin and place into a mixer. You can also use a potato masher and do this in a bowl. While on slow speed and using a paddle attachment slowly add in the cream butter mixture until incorporated and smooth. Taste the puree and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
