Any ideas/recipes? I only need half the can for my pumpkin cheesecake so now I have half a can waiting to be used. Maybe something along the lines of pumpkin muffins?

Or just freeze what you don't use. Just mark the bag or container how much is in there.

Trader Joes has a pumpkin bread mix. Add the extra puree and it will be extra moist and pumpkin-y!

Bread, muffins, pancakes.
You could make a smoothie with it- 1/2 cup puree, 1/2 cup milk (I use hemp), 1tbls honey, some ice or vanilla ice cream, and some spice.
Yum!

Pumpkin pancake recipes often use just part of a can.

Or you can make your own pumpkin spice lattes.

I'd add it to the cheesecake, personally.

Or add it to pancake batter. Or make spicy pumpkin soup.

pumkin cheesecake - YUM!

I buy the larger cans and end up with half left for most recipes, too, so I put it in a ziplock and into the freezer.

You can add pumpkin to many things: breads, cookies, pancakes, etc.

I make these muffins a lot... except that I cut the sugar to half a cup, don't do the topping, use ww flour and flaxseed flour, throw in some oats, and add about a half a cup chocolate chips and a third of a cup chopped nuts.

SO, basically it's an entirely different recipe... and I use the whole can of pumpkin, but the recipe actually calls for half, I think.

I regularly add pumpkin puree to pancakes and waffles. Just use your regular recipe and add a small scoop of puree.

Also delicious is what I call "pumpkin pie applesauce"--just mix about 2 to 3 parts applesauce to pumpkin puree and sprinkle in some cinnamon.

But the BEST recent discovery I've made is mixing pumpkin puree into oatmeal! Just add some raisins, cinnamon, and milk. YUM!!!

I agree, stirring it into oatmeal is great with a little cinnamon and nutmeg!

For a more savory option, this pumpkin quiche is a staple in our house and only calls for one cup of pumpkin puree. I usually make a whole-wheat crust with ground-up cheese and hazelnuts in it, then serve the quiche about an hour after I take it out of the oven with a salad on the side - hazelnuts and dried cranberries in the salad go great, with a mustard vinaigrette.

I love adding canned pumpkin to my chili. It's healthy and it's gives the chili a nice creamy texture with a savory flavor.

I had about a cup of pumpkin puree left earlier tonight after baking a pie and muffins... I just ate it out of the measuring cup. It was my dinner!

It was freshly baked pumpkin puree, though, not out of a can.

And I've had three pumpkin chocolate chip muffins for dessert. So far.
