Try making Pumpkin Butter, just cook and mash the pumpkin to make your own puree beforehand. Great for Holiday Gifts too! :)

Cooked and pureed pumpkin alone has a very subtle flavor and therefore can be added to just about anything! Mix it into breads, sauces (Spaghetti sauce is a great one!) and just about anything. Be creative!

I haven't tried it yet, but I heard adding cooked/pureed pumpkin to hot cocoa makes a more creamy texture (not to mention all the vitamins)

I like to put a whole "cooking" pumpkin in the oven at about 300 degrees F and cook it for an hour or two, until it smells good and the shell breaks when I press on it. I take it out and let it cool, then cut it open. I separate the seeds for roasting and scoop out the cooked pumpkin. It is so much easier than trying to skin a raw pumpkin.

Now if I can only think of something to do with that lovely hard shell.
