This looks like a good way to use it up...

Timing Tip: Can be made up to 2 days ahead.

For garnish: lightly sweetened whipped cream, chopped pistachio nuts,
ground cinnamon.

1. Have a 1 1/2-quart souffle dish or 2- to 3- quart serving bowl
ready. 2. IF USING SOUFFLE DISH: Tear off a piece of foil or waxed
paper 4 inches longer than the circumference of the souffle dish.
Fold in thirds lengthwise. Fit around outside of dish with 2-inch
collar extending above the dish. Fasten over lapping ends to each
other with cellophane tape or paper clips. 3. Beat cream in a large
bowl with electric mixer just until soft peaks form when beaters are

mixture then bourbon and 1/2-cup whipped cream. Fold in remaining
whipped cream until blended. 6. Pour into prepared dish or serving

to 2 days. 7. BEFORE SERVING: Remove collar. Spread top of souffle
with whipped cream. Score lightly with knife and sprinkle with

jkath, if I feed it to my dog, I think I'd better leave her outside for a while, if you know what I mean.

Ironchef, pardon my ignorance, but I've never tried pumpkin soup. I've seen recipes for it, though, and it looks good. Do you serve it as an appetizor, dessert, or what?

You can make it as an appetizer. Is the puree already sweetened? If so, then you could always make a pumpkin sorbet, pumpkin panna cotta, etc.
