Melt butter in medium soup pot. Add flour and whisk until smooth (let it bubble for a minute or two, but don't let it burn). Add milk or cream, chicken broth, and squash and keep stirring to be sure it doesn't stick or burn. (If you have any squash chunks in there that you don't think will fly with the kids, you can use a Hand Blender
to make it a more smooth consistency). Mix in maple syrup, salt and pepper. When ready to serve, sprinkle some crispy pecans
on top – this makes it! Fast, easy and yummy!
