Make your own pumpkin purée

Purchase a small to medium-sized pumpkin and pierce all over with ice pick or knife. Remove the stem. Preheat the oven at 350°F. Microwave your pumpkin for about ten minutes to cut on your oven-baking time. Cut your pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds. (Save those for later as a roasted snack!) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pumpkin on the sheet, cut-side down. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the pumpkin is easily pierced with a fork. Once it's baked, remove from the oven to scoop out everything from the skin. Purée in a food processor. Drain excess water with a sieve so that you're left with a thick purée. You'll need about 2 cups for the recipe above.
