Last fall, I roasted two of the pumpkins I grew in my garden. I pureed them and froze them in two-cup portions. So that's what I used to bake pumpkin pies for holidays. Most recipes call for two cups - that's equivalent to a can. But I had one cup left over and didn't know what to do with it. I saw that you can turn pumpkin bars into applesauce bars by just substituting applesauce in the recipe. So I did 50-50: pumpkin-applesauce bars. They didn't look orange, and they basically tasted like spice bars without a particular fruit taste. But they were good.
