Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.
Place the squash halves flesh-side-down on the baking sheet and roast the squash for 30-35 minutes until fork-tender.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the tender squash flesh into a large mixing bowl. Add the brown butter, maple syrup, salt and pepper to the squash. Use a handheld mixer or standing mixer with the paddle attachment to whip the squash until all the ingredients are incorporated and the squash is nice and smooth, about a minute.
Spoon the squash into a serving dish and sprinkle lightly with a dusting of ground cinnamon. Serve immediately.
Squash can be made ahead up to 1 day and reheated in the oven or microwave, stirring throughout the heating process to heat it evenly.
