For those who are wondering (like I did), how much puree you get out of a sugar pumpkin I measured it. Cut in half my pumpkin measured 5 1/2 inches across and after pureeing it I measured just over 2 cups of pumpkin (the measurement for pumpkin doesn't have to be exact). Sugar pumpkins are the small darker orange pumpkins you see in the grocery mainly in the fall. This recipe is wonderful and everyone loves it. I did try adding a bit more pumpkin pie spice as suggested by others the second time and from then on. It is runny at first but sets up beautifully. I've tried other recipes on this site and I will never use another recipe again (even after using sugar pumpkins in the recipes calling for canned). This is amazing and so easy. This year I'm going to buy more pumpkins, and freeze the puree for year round goodness. By the way, after baking two pumpkins, one just wouldn't get real soft even after putting it back in the oven, but it pureed beautifully in the blender.
