Help! My Homemade Pumpkin Puree is Disappointing

Good Questions

Q: I thought it would be a great idea to try to make pumpkin purée from scratch. I brought home two Sugar Pie pumpkins, and roasted and puréed them.

Unfortunately, my pumpkin is yellow, not sweet, and tastes like regular old squash. What else can I make with all this purée? I am going to stick with canned for the good old fashioned pumpkin pie.
