Three Little Pumpkins sitting on a fence

Pumpkin puree is not common in the supermarkets now so when I saw how to make your own puree I had to try it. Here is my little pictorial adventure with this process I followed from  Annie's Eats .

three little pumpkins sitting on a fence....

this was the hardest part for me... ever since I was little I really do not like scraping out the pumpkins so icky and sticky

finally done baking in the oven... house smells so pumpkiny right now

be very careful this stuff is HoT... I was impatient and hurt my fingers

can not wait to bake with this yummy goodness... just one problem ... What to make?
{out of my little pumpkin we got a tad more than 1 cup}

And the winner is.... Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies :p

The girls and I were so happy that this adventure was a success!  Making your own puree is super EASY ~ which means a lot when I say that ;)   The puree we got from our little pumpkin had a mild flavor and would be a great way to sneak some orange into your picky eaters diet.
