Servings: 8 people
- 1 small Pie Pumpkin or sugar pie pumpkin
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash the pumpkin to remove any dirt, then slice off the stem and cut the pumpkin in half.
Scoop out the seeds and either save for another use or discard. Place the halves cut side down onto a baking sheet or baking dish.
Add about ¼" water to the bottom of the baking dish, then cover with aluminum foil and roast for 40-50 minutes, or until fork tender.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool until you can handle it, then carefully scoop out the flesh (discard the skin), place into a food processor and blend until smooth.
You can either use immediately in a recipe, or cool completely and store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freezer for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
