In a large bowl beat the mashed Kabocha squash, born sugar, whipping cream, melted butter and ground cinnamon. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes or until completely combined.
Transfer to a baking dish. and smooth the top with the back of a spoon or spatula. I used a deep dish 9 inch pie plate.
In a small bowl mix the brown sugar, flour, and ground cinnamon until combined.
Add the softened butter. Work the softened butter into the dry ingredients with your hands by rubbing the butter into the dry ingredients. Do this until you only see a small amount of lumps from the butter. Add the chopped pecans to the bowl and toss until coated.
