Preheat oven to 400F.
Place pumpkin and sweet potato pieces on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
Place aside to cool.
In the meantime, sauté the onion until nice golden color.
Peel the pumpkin and sweet potatoes, cut to smaller pieces and place in a pot.
Add onions, chicken broth, and cook covered on a low heat for about 15 min.
Add salt and pepper after it boils.
Let the soup cool a bit, remove about half of the liquids from the pot. 
Process the vegetables with the remaining in the pot liquid either with a hand blender or in the convention blender. 
Add the whipping cream and process again, making sure the soup is smooth. To make the croutons, cut the baguette to about 2/3” cubes. Place them on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper, brush with olive oil and bake for about 10 min or until bread is crisp.
