I always bake a butternut squash and puree it rather than use pumpkin.Butternut squash has so much more flavor and bettert texture.The squash can replace pumpkin in all recipes Bake a whole butternut squash in the oven on a baking sheet until a fork inserted feels soft and cooked. Let the squash stand until cool, cut open, seed and scoop out the meat then puree in a food processor.
