what to do with half a can of pumpkin puree

Happens to me every Thanksgiving....what to do with the half can that's remaining....any ideas?
Make pumpkin biscuits or pumpkin rolls (like squash rolls)? I have a pumpkin swirl brownie recipe to try. A quick google found some recipes that requires a cup of pumpkin pure.
i always throw mine in my oatmeal with some pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, low fat cream cheese, and granola for a really healthy, delicious oatmeal!!
it also makes some really good granola, cinnamon rolls, pumpkin bread, brownies, shakes and smoothies, cakes, chili, curry, ice cream... pumpkin is the great masquerader!
I freeze it in a different container, of course. Then later I can make muffins, cookies or bread.
Buy the half size cans next year! Stores usually have both.
I haven't made from a can in a long time, I didn't look and used the bigger can even though I had both on hand. As I added ingredients, I thought, this is really a lot of filling. Didn't read the fine print on top, recipe is for two pies. So we have an extra one in the freezer now.
What to do this time, I would add to soup, chili, curry etc; to oatmeal or yougurt for breakfast, or make a hummus type dip out of it.
If you have a dog, they LOVE it and it's very good for them (or so I'm told).
