Prep Time 30minutes
Cook Time 45minutes
Total Time 1hour15minutes
Fresh whole Pumpkin or leftover carved pumpkins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the pumpkins into hand size chunks or quarters with the peel still attached. And if you haven’t already, clean out seeds and pulp and save seeds for roasting later.
Place pumpkin pieces on a baking sheet lined with the parchment paper cut side up so the skin is touching the baking sheet. This way if the pumpkin gets a little too brown on the bottom, it’s on the peel which will be removed.
Place in the 350F degree oven and roast for about 45 minutes until they are fork-tender.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Then peel off the skin from the pumpkin pieces or scoop out the meat of the pumpkin with a large spoon. Discard skin.
Place pumpkin in a food processor, a few scoops at a time. Working in batches, pulse until the pumpkin is smooth.
