what to do with extra 1/2 can of pumpkin puree

I made cookies and only needed 1 cup of pumpkin puree, I have a lot left!
What should I make with my leftover ingredient? I was thinking soup. I have
some chicken broth.... anything more original ideas?

  1. Make your own Pumpkin Spice Lattes and bypass Starbucks!

    (there are lots of other copycat recipes/variations on the net, too!)

    1. You can also stick it in a plastic container and freeze it if you want to save it for another batch of cookies.

      1. This is a pumpkin scone recipe that was on Etsy's blog recently:

        1. I'd make a small batch of pumpkin butter.

          I just finished a large can of pure pumpkin off this way and I am enjoying the butter (which contains no actually dairy butter) swirled in greek yogurt, spread on scones and pancakes and just right out of the jar. http://oneperfectbite.blogspot.com/20...
          eta: I didn't have apple juice at the time so I sub'd pear juice.
