Expert Tips

Canned pumpkin is sometimes labeled as “pure pumpkin.”

There will be a little leftover pumpkin mixture. You can either make a few more pies or make a quick mini pumpkin cobbler. Pour the leftover mixture into a small baking dish and sprinkle with 1 package maple-brown sugar instant oatmeal. Top with 1 teaspoon butter cut into small pieces. Bake at 350°F 25 to 30 minutes.
