most pumpkins are not good for pies. so I use butternut squash or sweet potato for pies. that is my opinion.
These were "pie pumpkin". The little ones. It is VERY good. Two of them have be enough pure for 4 or 5 pies. I made two last night, might make pancakes tomorrow!

I was happy with these, so I saved the seeds too!

I've never had pumpkin pancakes; it's too difficult asking for them.
Very easy to make using pancake mix. Add puree equivalent to water called for. Add water as needed for consistency. This is how I always do it and they turn out great!

@vette-kid , glad you know the difference. I did state that, because lots of folks don't know that not all pumpkins make good pies. anyway, @headfullofbees , why is it to difficult asking for them? For me its easier to make sweet potato pancakes, and it would taste like pumpkin as you use the same spices. I just, at some point of the week have a dinner where I roast an extra sweet potato, and put it in the fridge for later that week. simply peel the potato and go from there with the blender or food processor and same ingredients. comes out yummy..

I have not looked up the nutrition facts. But I will, my wife loves sweet potato and I am hopeful for another harvest here in a month or so. Just made a sweet potato soup from the last harvest.
