    So, I've been itching to cook with pumpkin ever since last year...so I bought a couple-three cans and cracked one open to make pumpkin jam swirl muffins, which turned out OK.

    Of course, the recipe - like most baking recipes for pumpkin - called for 1 cup of pumpkin. According to Libby's, a 15 oz jar contains 1 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree...so I am casting about for recipes that use that amount.

    Thus far, I've found this recipe from Martha Stewart that looks pretty good, and this one is interesting, some whoopie pies, a granola, and a bread pudding.

    These are all great possibilities, but I was wondering if you had some ideas about what to do with the extras...not a lot of savory recipes out there with this measurement.

    Soup? Easily scaleable...

    P.S. Somewhere to start, although it uses fresh pumpkin:

    How about pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin doughnuts, pumpkin cookies? I have that pumpkin granola bookmarked on another blog as well. I will probably make it soon and sub the pistachios with pepitas. I really love the combination of pumpkin and dried cranberries, which I used in this pumpkin bread recipe using shredded fresh pumpkin. Speaking of fresh pumpkin, this recipe looks really good!

    Now that we have a dog, we usually give him a little w/his breakfast each day or I use it in homemade dog treats.

    Edited to add fresh pumpkin recipes.

    Recently I baked a pumpkin pie for my dad, and after it was cooling did I realize that I never put any sugar in it. Somewhere on this board was a thread about making a pumpkin pie shake by blending up a slice with ice cream and milk. I think you could do the same thing: toss some ice cream, spices, graham crackers or gingersnaps and leftover pumpkin in a blender and have a nice little dessert. Or you can go the healthy route and add yogurt, cranberries and healthy cereal and make a smoothie instead. I recommend the shake/malt. :mrgreen:

    A friend gives me a nice loaf of pumpkin bread every year for Christmas. Give that a try using a banana bread recipe.

    grab a few egg roll wraps, saute some green onions, chili pepper and maybe some cumin, mix with pumpkin paste, stuff in egg roll skins, fry, and voila Afghani kadu bolani.

    I would suggest just looking for a pumpkin loaf recipe. Banana bread recipes will not have the right spices.

    There's a good recipe in the Union Square Cafe cookbook which is also the base for a nice bread pudding with a ginger custard, but I don't know if it's on line.

    Pumpkin Brownies. These sound interesting and, if I recall correctly, don't need a whole can.
    Recipes for this can be found on Martha Stewart and epicurious.

    Jacques Pepin has an interesting savory pumpkin gratin recipe that I'll be trying soon. That guy is amazing!
